If I push an installation to WPEngine from my Mac, and that install has symlinks, those files are not pushed. In most of my installs, I symlink the themes, plugins and mu-plugins directories. So, when I push to WPEngine, it wipes out those directories on WPEngine, and I have to restore them through a different method.
Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
I have tested multiple WPEngine-hosted sites with symlinks set up, and it happens in all of those.
Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
- Create a new install, or pull an install from WPEngine on Mac OSX (in my case, Mojave).
- Remove the plugins (or themes or mu-plugins, or whatever) directory from the install, and set up a symlink to another directory somewhere else on your computer.
- Change something in the symlinked directory and then Push to WPEngine.
- The directory for which you’d created a symlink is now missing from the WPEngine server.
Which version of Local is being used? 5.8.1+4931

- macOS Mojave 10.14.6
