Pulling previous "Local Sites" into new Local setup

Howdy! I used Local to create almost 20 sites over the past few months, and then needed to reformat my computer.

I backed up all my sites and then restored them to the same folder on my Mac. Now I went into Local and it said I had no new sites, so I created a new one.

I now see the new Site inside of “Local Sites”, along with all the other folders, but they are not showing up in the App.

Any suggestions?

Hi Joshua,

If you have the sites backed up as zips then you can simply drop them onto Local’s dock icon or window to import them.

Otherwise, if you’re working with folders check out How can I restore a site from a Local site folder?
