Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hey @Allen – Welcome to the forums!

Looking at the Local log, I’m seeing a line early on that looks like this:

{"thread":"main","class":"DownloaderQueue","errno":-28,"code":"ENOSPC","syscall":"write","level":"warn","stack":"Error: ENOSPC: no space left on device, write","message":"ENOSPC: no space left on device, write","timestamp":"2021-10-11T07:52:24.861Z"}

Note the part that says ENOSPC: no space left on device

I think what might have happened was that there wasn’t enough disk space for Local to download the PHP Lightning Service it needed to and so now, no other sites that are created using that version of PHP will work.

Can you try freeing up some space and then re-installing Local to see if that fixes things?

Because Local has a few different parts, you might need to remove the configuration folder as well. This help doc goes into more detail about uninstalling the various parts of Local:
