Unable to import site. Error 1146

I am connected to WP Engine and trying to pull down a site and it’s database

This is there exact error I’m getting

Uh-oh! Unable to import site.

Error: Command failed: /Applications/Local.app/Contents/Resources/extraResources/lightning-services/mysql-8.0.16+6/bin/darwin/bin/mysql local -B --disable-column-names -e SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘siteurl’;

ERROR 1146 (42S02) at line 1: Table ‘local.wp_options’ doesn’t exist

I checked the database and that table does exist.

I looked through the forums and I couldn’t find a solution to solve this error.

Please advise.

Hi @gregslonina

It looks like you’re quite a few versions behind in your Local app. For starters, could you go here and update to the latest release?

Then I would restart your machine, and afterward reset your API credentials with WPE

If you’re still having trouble after that keep us posted!

I updated Local and generated new credentials. And I’m still having issues.

I was looking at the log and there are some Rsync errors.
Can you take a look and let me know what to do next.

Following up here

@gregslonina Hi Greg! Happy to help.

The first issue you saw was due to the older version of Local; a breaking change on the WP Engine platform required an updated version of Local, released as Local v7.0. So that is fixed! Now, your new issue…

Yes, the rsync logs are helpful. Here’s the culprit:

{“thread”:“main”,“class”:“RsyncService”,“message”:“rsync: [sender] opendir "/sites/prdmaidbrigade/.git" failed: Permission denied (13)\n”,“level”:“warn”,“timestamp”:“2023-07-26T00:52:01.638Z”}

Another user wrote in also seeing an issue with the .git folder causing the pull to fail. We’re working on an improvement to prevent permissions errors on that folder from causing the entire pull to fail - in the meantime, if you’re able, you could help us better understand the issue! Would you be able to SSH into this site on WP Engine and run ls -l in the site folder? Sharing that with us will help us understand what permissions issue Local is running into when it sees the .git directory. Thanks!

Hey @gregslonina

The team is still looking into this and should have a fix in place soon. As a workaround in the meantime, can you download a backup and direct import it?

Hey @gregslonina - thanks for sharing that! That was very helpful for us in tracking this down.

Like we thought, the issue was when the remote server contained files that Local didn’t have permissions to (like the .git folder). Local should have just kept going anyways… and instead errored out.

Good news, a fix has been released for this to Local Beta. It is working internally and for other users who’ve seen the issue - if you get a chance, can you download the build here and try to pull again and let us know if you see things resolved? Local Beta 7.1.2

I can pull again with the new Beta version :slightly_smiling_face:

However it installed a separate Local application and the sites I already had in my older Local app aren’t there in the beta version.
It looks like I’ll have to add new sites.

We should have a new release out soon with the fixes in place, but glad to hear that the Beta is working for you! You’ll have to transfer any sites into the Beta that you want to work on in the meantime, and then move them to the new version when it’s ready. We’re working to get that out as quickly as we can so stay tuned :slight_smile:


Hey @gregslonina - just following up to say Local v7.1.2 is released to production, and you should be good to return to “normal” Local on the new build. If you have any issues with Connect to WP Engine, please let us know!
