Upgrade Does Not Open

Issue Summary

I clicked the upgrade button on Local, the new version downloaded, but then it wouldn’t launch. Sometimes the icon bounced like it was opening but it did nothing. Sometimes it just gave me a quit or reopen dialogue.

I tried throwing away the new one and downgrading back to 6.6 but now the router won’t start and there is nothing running on port 80.

Troubleshooting Questions

I can’t do anything with local, it won’t launch.


Upgraded from 6.6 to 6.7.

System Details

Local 6.6, 6.7

Now it is asking me to “update” to v6.4 from v6.6.

I would really like to avoid having to clean delete the whole thing as setting up our local for our multiple WP Engine installs is not a fun experience.

@ngarcia Are you able to manually download and update your Local? You can go to the releases page and download the version you need and then follow your prompts: Releases - Local

After that, you might try a full-machine reboot as well.

Are you running any other developer applications as well like MAMP or XAMPP?

I am not running any other web servers.

Here is what I did, and it seems to be working again:

  1. update MacOS Monterey + Xcode (I wasn’t brave enough to tempt fate with Ventura ha)
  2. Update Chrome
  3. Download the manual install of 6.7 for Silicon and install that.

I will say that the release page can be hard to find to get the right version sometimes, as I had to do that a couple of times yesterday to downgrade/upgrade. The default takes you to the wizard landing, but I needed to make sure I was getting the right one.


I also did find this in a back window, it seems the original crashing after the auto-upgrade was due to rosetta errors. So in case it helps anyone:
