No such host error

Hello,

All of my local sites are showing the same error message:

dial tcp: lookup optifymy.local on 127.0.0.1:53: no such host

Does anyone have a solution to this or has encountered this previously?

Hi @growdigital,

Are you running Local on macOS or Windows? Also, are you running any type of anti-virus or internet security?

The Local domain is pointing to your loopback IP (127.0.0.1) instead of the Local VM IP which usually looks something like 192.168.XX.100. This is usually indicative of the hosts file not updating properly.

Sorry for the trouble!

Hi @clay,

I’m running local on Windows and I’m facing the exact same problem than @growdigital with this error message: dial tcp: lookup wordpressbykrystle.local on 127.0.0.1:53: no such host.

Also,I’m running avast antivirus and the standard window defender?

Thank You in advance!

Kind Regards

Krystle

@growdigital @Krystle,

Can you both please provide your local-by-flywheel.log files? Please see “How do I retrieve Local’s log file?” for instructions on how to do so.

@clay,

It’s good by my side. I finally found out that my VPN was blocking the process.

Thank you!
