Provisioning Stalls

Hey there,

Seems like I can’t create any new sites. When I try, the “provisioning” hangs on either WP-CLI or Installing WordPress.

Either way, I can’t move forward and get new sites running. Please advise.


I’m getting the same issue. Is this a MySQL error preventing later provisioning?

Apr 2, 2018, 3:20 PM PDT - info: [worker: mysql-worker] /etc/init.d/mysql: ERROR: The partition with /var/lib/mysql is too full! ... failed!

I tried different MySQL versions but no difference. I also tried to clone an existing site but that failed as well. I’ve uploaded my log here:

FWIW I get an “out of space” error when trying to connect to one of these failed sites using Adminer:

This ties in with an entry from @justinkorn’s log.

Also tried disabling Faster Docker Volumes. All aboard the NopeTrain:

@clay I think this is a disk space issue. I had 40 sites on Local, which I’ve just pruned down to 32. I’m no longer getting errors in the log, MySQL appears to start correctly, and I can add new sites.

Looking in VirtualBox, I can see there’s 18GB allocated to disk.vmdk. I may be misunderstanding this, but could you please consider making this a user-definable size, or adding a warning when Local disk usage nears this limit?

@justinkorn Try deleting some sites or reducing disk usage.

Thanks, @mattrad. Unfortunately, this has become a SERIOUS issue. Now I can’t even get other sites to start (MySQL issues), which means I can’t export them to back them up so I can delete them.

I’ve lost an entire day already to this issue and now it looks like I’m going to have to delete sites which I’ll have to reset later which means more lost time.

Really starting to think I need to find a new solution for local development. Hope support or @clay have an answer.

PS. I realize this is a “free” product, however, I purchased it before the acquisition with no compensation/refund and only promises of a PRO version that seems to never come (and likely will have the same issues). My frustration has grown with the application as I keep hitting roadblocks and wasting time.

Ugh. Bitten by this again. Half a day lost. @clay Is there any resolution to this other than deleting sites?
