Moved folders

Issue Summary

Hello there — I have moved my local sites folder (holding a few sites) to a new location as they sat in my iCloud folder. This caused a constant upload when developing sites. Since I am on Mac I grew up with the fact that you can simply move folders without a glitch. Apparently not with the local app. All my sites are not working. Where can I fix this?

My new sites are perfectly stored in the new folder location so that works. I am specifically looking into how to fix my older sites.

The error states:
502 Request Error

Hi bro,

1.-Copy local.sql from your oldfolder to your desktop -------> oldfolder/app/sql/local.sql
2.-Create a new site in local, for example: mynewsite.
3.-Delete mynewsite folder and rename your oldfolder with this name.

4.-In Local, go to DATABASE / OPEN ADMINER
5.-Delete all the entries in the local Table
6.-Import your old local.sql db from your desktop

That’s All
