Unable to start up existing website

I dropped the zip file of my existing website and it worked fine until I try to start it up, says the following:

Hi @alba5

We would be happy to assist with your Local troubleshooting! Could you provide some more details to help us take a further look?

  • What is your OS?

  • What version of Local are you on?

  • Please attach a copy of your Local Logs

Keep us posted and we’d be happy to help further!

Hi Nick,

OS is Monterrey 12.6.2 (M2)

Local Version 7.2.0+6425

These are my logs:

local-lightning.log (35.3 KB)

As a test, can you try the steps below?

  • Export the site into a zip file and save it to your desktop
  • Delete the site in Local
  • Quit and reopen Local
  • Ensure any other sites are all Stopped
  • Reimport the zip backup and see if the site will load

I’ve made a new zip file with WP File Manager and now it whenever i import the zip to local it says the following : “ please try again with compatible zip file”. I don’t know why its not working.

There might be some extra files in the zip that are confusing the import. Like extra backups, DB backup or migration/backup plugins. Could you create a new zip that only includes the wp-content and SQL files and excludes any of those things mentioned?
