I am having a major issue with Local (v5.10.4+5377) on Windows 10 Home (v10.0.19041 Build 19041).
I have many sites already, but all-of-a-sudden I can no longer create new sites.
Every time I try, I get the following error. I have tried various times on Preferred and Custom settings, tried restarting machine etc. but nothing works.
I have seen other people report this previously, but no solution works. I have tried unzipping the wordpress.tar.gz file in the app directory.
Please can you help as soon as possible?
Hey @elliottmangham –
- Can you please provide your Local Log? See this Community Forum post for instructions on how to do so:
Have you tried downloading and manually installing the latest version of Local?
Also, in one of the topics you link to, then mention there was an issue with using a space within the username or password of the WordPress site. Do either of those things apply to you?
Hey @elliottmangham – were you able to get things fixed?
One other thing that comes to mind from that error is that it appears that a file that Local is expecting isn’t available to it.
It’s possible that a recent update to Windows has changed the environment, or maybe some sort of antivirus has quarantined the file so that Local can’t access it.
So sorry for the delay, it somehow worked but now I am starting another project I just cannot get it to create a site. I’ve tried on Apache and Nginx.
Here is the Log you requested:-
local-lightning.log (992.2 KB)
I can confirm that I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Local but no luck. I don’t have any antivirus either I’m afraid.
Oops, seems I told a lie! I had Avast installed. After uninstalling that, uninstalling and reinstalling Local (again) it is now seemingly working again!
