Just create a new site with all of local’s recommandations.

Here is the WP error message in setting / general

The only way I found to get around the problem is to clone and then reset an old site

Can you help me?

Hi @Doune - no worries on speaking English, we will try to help you as best we can!

This is actually expected - the SQL folder and file isn’t added until you stop the site. This is what causes Local to save all database changes. I confirmed this with my build, and the sites are working normally.

It looks like the computer had issues communicating with WordPress.org - is there any firewall that could be blocking the computer talking to WP.org? Or is there a plugin that you’ve installed that is using the translation-install.php file?

Thank you very much for your help and quick response. I had not noticed that the SQL file was created after restarting the site. Thank you!!!

I have deactivated Net Barrier Intego and I have no more problems.

Do you have a recommended configuration with this software? https://www.intego.com/

Have a nice day !
