Hi! I installed Local v6.0.0+5444 on my Windows 10 machine to replace the XAMPP platform I had been using for years. I really like it. My problem is that the DNS resolution or initial connection is very slow. Sometimes 5 seconds or longer. Once the initial connection is established, it is very fast.
Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular? All sites
Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser? Yes
Here is a screenshot of the Network tab in Chrome:
This is for any WordPress install I create. The initial response is slow on any site I create, big or small. It is faster if I develop on my Cloudways server, which kind of defeats the purpose of developing locally.
Here is the contents of my ‘hosts’ file:
## Local by Flywheel - Start ## ::1 divi-community.local #Local Site 127.0.0.1 divi-community.local #Local Site ::1 www.divi-community.local #Local Site 127.0.0.1 www.divi-community.local #Local Site ## Local by Flywheel - End ##
I have also cleared and reset all network connections, and disabled any I wasn’t using.
Which version of Local is being used? 6.0.0+5444
What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
- Windows 10 Professional
