Sites Missing from Local WP

Issue Summary

I’ve been working on a few WP sites and had them running for a while, but just logged on today and all of them are missing. It’s saying that it ‘Looks like you haven’t created any sites yet!’

Troubleshooting Questions

Looking in the Local Sites folder all my sites are there and intact, but it looks like Local WP isn’t seeing these as sites! I have no idea how to get the program to add these sites back again so I can run them- has anyone else had this issue?

System Details

Local WP 5.10.1+5267 on Windows 10

Was there a recent update that was installed – either to Local or the Windows?

In terms of getting those sites back, can you try restoring the sites to a new ones in Local?

To do this, copy those site folders to a temporary location (for example a folder on your desktop) and then try creating a zip and importing into Local using the steps outlined in the “Restoring From Only Local Site files” section of this help doc:

Can you give that a try and let us know if that gets the sites back for you?
