Permission errors galore importing Flywheel site into 5.9.8 on Big Sur

I have a site backup from Flywheel which I am trying to restore to the latest (i.e. 5.9.8) version of LocalWP.

Starting the site, I get a number of permission errors, including the inability to update themes/plugins. Errors appear on both the fronend and wp-admin dashboard, and the site doesn’t render properly.

For example: Fixing Divi Booster Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied Error | Divi Booster

I deactivated the plugin above, though kept getting all sort of other issues, including my parent theme (Divi) being deleted.

I tried to fix directory permissions using Terminal, as per another thread I found in this forum:

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

No dice. I deleted the site and am going to try again, though was wondering if there’s a magic wand that can fix permissions in this app?

This is the post I referenced above: Add one click "Fix Permissions"
