Local Community

Uh-oh! unable to start site

Good morning,
I have this error message when I want to connect to wordpress

Hi there @amarigna - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Can you please provide a little more information?

It would be helpful to know:

  • Your operating system
  • Your Local version
  • Information about the Local site (PHP version, Web server, etc)

Are you able to create a Local site with default settings?

Let’s start there,


Good morning,
windows 11 operating system.
php 8.1.9
nginx web server

yes I can create another site and it works

I get a message telling me that I cannot connect to telnet ::1

I’m getting the same error

Hello @amarigna and @kgarrison -

Can you please provide Local Logs so we can assist further?

You can follow this help doc: Retrieving Local’s Log File - Local

Thank you!


hello, here are the files
local-logs1.zip (49.2 KB)
local-logs.zip (35.0 KB)

local-lightning.log (783.2 KB)
I thought I attached. This is the file that comes up when following those directions.

correction - i DID attach but that was in my own support ticket, not this one. Same issue though.

@amarigna and @kgarrison

Based on the logs it looks like there is a port conflict. Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local? Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

More details about troubleshooting this here: Router Mode

Good morning,
thank you for your advice I tried but it does not work; I once managed to connect to wordpress by switching to Apache but since yesterday nothing.

Creating a new account works fine.
