Hi @bmarku

If you create a new, blank site in Local can you access that okay? If you can, then you may want to try reimporting the site getting the errors. The steps would look like this:

  • Locate the site files on your machine, and save a copy of them to your desktop. If you click Go to Site Folder under your site name it should take you right to where they are located.
  • Once you have those copied, completely delete the site from Local
  • Restart Local/your machine
  • Reimport the site back into Local. You can refer here on how to Restore from only Local site files

I tried that and it opens as a blank website

After you re-import the site it just shows as a blank website?

yes, just a blank website

Do you still have the original site files on your machine? If you look at the wp-content and database files do you see the content of your site in there? If you do you can try manually moving those into a new, blank site using the steps here:
