Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @Alijens - thanks for using Local! Local has known limitations related to special characters - however, it looks like another user was able to resolve this by adding a quick like to the wp-config.php.

Can you try the solution here and see if that resolves it for you?

I have tried the solution there and it does not work.
