Provisioning takes for ever... and stuffed everything

Hello everyone,

Very new to WP and to LocalbyFlywheel, so bear with me.

Few days I started developing a site and it was all perfectly well. Today, I changed the name of the site and the name of the domain in LocalbyFlywheel and I am getting Provisioning message for almost an hour.

My question is: how long does provisioning takes, and is there a way for me to save my work if this thing never ends?

Using iMac with the latest OS.


It looks like I managed to mess up my work big time.

I restarted Local and after that I changed the name of the wesbiste and the domain name to the old ones, but still no joy. What is worse, the domain name that I wanted to use i.e. now is not accessible on my browser. Whenever I try to go to the live domain it pop up the local host error message.

Bottom line would be is there a way to restore my work and if so, how do I go for that.


If this may of help, this is the error message that I am getting when i click go to website in Local

Just attached the logs file. Hope someone will be able to give me helping hand with step by step for how to recover my work. (91.9 KB)


Thanks for the site log files! Can you also provide the local-by-flywheel.log file? See “How do I retrieve Local's log file? - FAQ - Local Community” for instructions on how to do so.

Provisioning shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes. The local-by-flywheel.log file should give us some info on why it’s stuck.

If you set a Local site to use the live site domain then it’ll override the live site. If you’re still unable to access it, make sure that you don’t have a site in Local with that domain.

Thanks Clay. Hope you’ll be able to recover my work. Although, being in Australia, time is working against me.

Attached is requested log. What I noticed, when I enable the live link and click on it, it actually open the site but without any formatting. First will appear gigantic SVG logo, and after refreshing, the logo is gone, and I get only the text without any formatting.

Thanks again.

Is there anything else that I have to submit Clay? It’s been a while.



Sorry for the delay!

Unfortunately, I’m not seeing anything telling in the log file.

So the Live Link is accessible but not the Local domain itself? What browser are you using?
