Hello. Unfortunately, since today I can not create a new website or start an existing one. No matter if I change the database or switch on the router mode.

Hi @Marcuchka - thanks for reaching out! Based on the error message, I’m assuming you’re on an Apple Silicon machine?

Are you using the Apple Silicon or the Intel build of Local? And are you on the latest release of Local (v7.2.1)?

I’m experiencing this exact same problem and I can’t seem to find a solution. I’ve already spent multiple hours trying to figure this out and it’s really, really frustrating.

@daneoleary Hey Dane, thanks for reaching out - sorry you’re running into issues!

I’m not on the Sonoma Public Beta personally, so I can’t verify that… but the error message looks unrelated to Sonoma. As far as we know, Local works great for those who have tried it on Sonoma.

I’ve got two laptops open, one Intel Mac and one Apple Silicon (running Rosetta), each with the respective build for the machine. I am able to create sites with PHP 7.3.5 on both machines on the latest Local.

Are you on an Apple Silicon or Intel based Mac? And are you using the Apple Silicon or Intel-based build of Local?

Last question - I haven’t heard back from OP yet, but at least their error message references Rosetta, so a bit different than yours. If you’re on an Apple Silicon machine, do you have Rosetta installed? This is required for Local on those machines.

Your error message shows that Local is trying to create a site with PHP 7.3.5, but when it checks your Application Support directory, the files don’t exist. Do other PHP versions work for you?
