Unable to open site locally via wp-admin

Issue Summary

After starting my site, I cannot export my site or access the wp-admin dashboard. Nothing’s working.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    I just created a temporary site and can open it locally via wp-admin. The only issue lies with the main site I was working on.

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


  • I tried to change the web server from Ngix to Apache
  • Changed PHP version

But it gets stuck on “provisioning,” and then I have to restart in order to see the changes. But these methods didn’t work.

System Details

  • Which version of Local is being used?

  • What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
    Windows 10 Pro

  • Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:
    local-lightning.log (432.2 KB)
    error.log (286.6 KB)

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @dedsoul -

I noticed in the error log there are some errors related to Elementor.

Are you able to accomplish what you are looking to do with a fresh Local site & a default WordPress theme?

Let me know so we can track down the source of the issue, please!


When I create a new site, it works fine.
Even with the Elementor, it was working perfectly, but after a couple of weeks, Local became so slow, hanging frequently, and the site won’t even load as the issue mentioned above.
