Upgrading to PHP 7 hangs

Hi there

I’ve used the dropdown selector to change a site to PHP 7.03 and Local has just hung for ages until I finally just shut it down. This seems to have killed the site locally. I’ve been able to set it up again as another instance as PHP 7 with no problems. Wondering if that’s how the PHP selector is supposed to be used and if the hanging situation is a bug. On a Mac.


Hi Alicia,

Sorry for the trouble! That definitely shouldn’t happen.

If you wish, please provide your local-by-flywheel.log file and we can take a closer look at what happened. You can find it by going to Help » Reveal Local’s Log.
