  • Missing host entry
    thanx Sean

Hello @mcgav - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Local is available to use for any Local WordPress development, it does not have to be connected to a Flywheel or WP Engine hosted site.

That error “Missing host entry” is often associated with an antivirus setting with your computer.

I would recommend starting with this help doc to see if you can resolve this issue:

Let me know if that helps!

thanx for your help sam . Ill post back

yeah its something to do with the hosts file. My Laptop doesnt have a host file (view hidden files). So I tried with my windows tablet (same antivirus - ESET) and it worked first time no issues…
I dont understand where the difference is??
