I am at a loss. Any and all help would be much appreciated. I don’t even know where to begin. Thank you!

@jarrett.peters Live Links are only available while you have the site Started and running in your Local app. They aren’t for long-term publishing/hosting but just a temporary link to share to give someone a preview of the site for a short period of time. Rest assured even if the Live Link is disabled/gone the site and files are still present on your Local app.

If you’re still having any trouble please let us know!

Yes, I am aware. Thank you! But it’s not just the live link that’s gone, the site is gone. I only posted the live link so someone could have a look at the extremely confusing error message I’m getting. The site is now started and running in my Local app. Could you have a look and let me know what you see?

Hi @jarrett.peters - the error you’re seeing is from the debugging tool Local comes with called XDEBUG. It seems like there is some type of critical error or conflict with the mailpoet plugin.

This may help you troubleshoot further:

You can also click on Open Site Shell beneath your site name to be able to interact with your site with WP CLI commands. You could run wp plugin deactivate mailpoet for example and see if that temporarily removes the error.

That did’t work. I got this: jpeters@Macbook-1 public % wp plugin deactivate mailpoet

Hi, @jarrett.peters - A critical error usually points to a plugin, theme, or code issue on the site. You may have to dive into this further, however, this wouldn’t be an issue with the Local app specifically but just WordPress development and the way the site is built in its current state.

Thank you, Nick. Restoring backups didn’t work either but I was able to recreate most of the site using a blueprint. I’ll have to go through and fix a bunch of broken links, but that’s certainly easier than rebuilding the whole site!

Hi @jarrett.peters sounds good! I’m glad you were at least able to find a viable workaround that is best for you. Sometimes that is just the fun of web site development :sweat_smile:

If you have any other questions or concerns about Local don’t hesitate to reach back out. We are always happy to help!
