Uh-oh! unable to start site

I am experiencing a similar issue. I have attempted all the solutions shared in this thread, but
unfortunately, none of them have resolved the problem. Since it is crucial for me to recover my website, I kindly request your assistance in opening it. Here is a screenshot of the error:

Hi @c46214

So you’re not running any other developer applications, security applications, and you’ve checked for port conflicts and tested changing your router mode?

Based on your logs it looks like you might have a Port conflict at play. I provided some notes up above to help investigate and address this. Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

Hi,

I got the same error. I used to have xampp and got an error that is why I transferred to localwp and created a whole new site. I am looking for solution as well. Please help. Thanks

Hi @Johnvic

Have you tried any of the troubleshooting mentioned in the thread yet? Changing your Router Mode, addressing port conflicts, etc?

Let us know what you’ve tried and what results you’ve had.

Bonjour, j’ai le même problème avec le même écran. Je crois également qu’il s’agit d’un blocage de sécurité Windows Defender, mais je n’en suis pas sûre. Cependant, une personne a qui j’avais partagé le lien du site ne pouvait pas non plus y accéder.

J’utilise :
Windows 11
version php 8.1.9
nginx, j’ai essayé de changer de serveur et le même message d’erreur s’affiche.

Je ne peux pas voir le site, ni me connecter en admin…
Je ne peux pas dupliquer ou créer un nouveau site
Merci d’avance pour votre aide

Hi @LaetCom

What have you tried so far to resolve this?

Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local?

More details about troubleshooting this here: Router Mode

Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

Have you checked permissions?

Hi Nick,

Thank you for your reply.
I tried changing web servers, that’s about it.

Yes I have McAfee. In fact the problem happened when I launched the update of the Local version, windows defender opened and from there I only had problems. I don’t think I have anything else.
I will look at the details sent on the troubleshooting: Router mode

I don’t have any other developer apps and haven’t checked permissions

You might need to look through the settings for McAfee and Windows Defender to check and see if anything is blocking Local or if Local needs to be “allowed” anywhere. Sometimes after an update a security application might re-flag it.

Very well thank you. I’m going to look at all of this.

Bonjour Nick,

Tout refonctionne !

J’ai mis à jour la version Local 7.2.1, j’ai mis à jour la version php 8.2.10 et j’ai pu me reconnecter en admin et voir le site. Je n’ai pas eu besoin de regarder la configuration McAfee et Windows Defender.

Quel soulagement !

Par contre, le live link pour partager le site en construction ne fonctionne pas.

Su Edge, il me met

504 Gateway Time-out

Glad to hear that (most) everything is working again!

Regarding the Live Link 504, could you check and see if it works in a different browser?

J’ai essayé sur Edge, Chrome et Firefox, j’obtiens l’erreur 404.

Je ne comprends pas !

Are you getting a 504 or a 404 error?

If you create a new, blank site in Local and try to access live link for that site do you get an error?

Hi Nick, I am having the same issue.

I am currently using Windows 11 and I am using Version 7.2.1+6433. This is the first time I am having this issue. Some of my websites are opening up but the others are refusing to start. I tried creating a new website and I am not experiencing this issue.

Please find the attached logs file.

Hi @lefahalo

For the websites refusing to start you might need to try reimporting them.

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

Thank you, it works and I appreciate your assistance.
