Let me know if this helps,


Hi Sam and thank you for reply!

In the meantime, I tried several variants here myself and found that the latest version of Local started working, when I downgraded php to an earlier version (php 7.3.5).
Of course, one option is to downgrade an older version of Local as suggested.
Thanks anyway!
