"Uh-oh! Unable to import site."

Issue Summary

I retrieved the wp-content via FileZilla. I retrieved the .sql with a whole-database dump from phpmyadmin. I zipped them together. Then, some SQL files failed to import. And the site as a whole failed to import. No site was created.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    Just this one.

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?


See screenshot above.

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?

    • Windows 11 Home, 22621.819
  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Hello there @darkhorse - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Have you tried using BackWPup as recommended in this help doc?

That might help format the files in a way Local can accept better.

Would you be able to try that?
