Old sites not opening after localwp update past 7.2.1

Bug Summary

i have 2 websites on localwp that are there a long time (over a year)
i started them when local was version 5 or 6

i use local version 7.2.1+6433

when i update to version 8 or 9 those sites just wont open up, i always get 504 error.
if im starting a new site it works and the site will open up normaly.
even if i take the old site and turn it to blueprint, then start a new site with this blueprint, it will work, the site will open up.

Hi @yochai

If you create a new, blank site in Local can you access that okay? If you can, then you may want to try reimporting the site getting the errors. The steps would look like this:

  • Locate the site files on your machine, and save a copy of them to your desktop. If you click Go to Site Folder under your site name it should take you right to where they are located.
  • Once you have those copied, completely delete the site from Local
  • Restart Local/your machine
  • Reimport the site back into Local. You can refer here on how to Restore from only Local site files

Hey @Nick-B thank you for your reply,

i have git installed on one of the sites, the site is on active development and i have some branches there that i want to keep.

do you think that by doing the proccess you mention (copy, delete, re-import) i will still have my git branches, and all my dev setup?

is there. maybe, a different solution that involves only changing some settings and commands on the same site?


i did as @Nick-B suggested and it worked!
also all my git branches and all the other IDE settings were saved, so, huray!
