Warn: [main/waitForMySQL] waitForMySQL Response: { stdout: '', stderr: '' }

Trying to update the environment by cloning never comes further then “Creating Site Container” and the log then reveals:

warn: [main/waitForMySQL] waitForMySQL Response:
{ stdout: ‘’, stderr: ‘’ }

Staring the site (after forcing the site to stop with errors: Uh-oh! MySQL was unavailable when Local tried to back up wprig-schulung Clone’s database.) I get a database error: Error establishing a database connection in frontend and a bit more verbose in backend:

This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at localhost . This could mean your host’s database server is down.

  • Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
  • Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
  • Are you sure that the database server is running?

If you’re unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host.

Opening Adminer reveals:

No such file or directory

This is the good news with sites that still work. Besides that I have several sites that don’t start anymore (separate topic)


Sorry about this.

What version of Local are you on? Also, what Environment is this site running?

I’m having the same problem.

I’m using Local 2.4.2
MacOS 10.14
