Hi, so I’m finding it difficult to update my WordPress site to the latest version which is WordPress 4.8. I encounter a server error every time (Local server support: 502) I try to figure it out. Anyone have a solution for this?
Tried updating using WP-CLI?
Hey Mark. What’s that? Where can I find that?
You can update via WP-CLI by doing the following:
- Right-click on the site in Local and click “Open Site SSH”
- Once Terminal/Cmd shows up, enter
wp core updateand press enter
Thank you so much this was so helpful
I have a similar problem with updating to the latest version of Wordpress (4.9.1). I followed your instructions above, but unfortunately, it didn’t work and returned the following:
error: Another update is currently in progress
While trying to update directly on the WordPress dashboard, I get this page:
Local Router Error
Our apologies for the inconvenience. The Local router is not able to connect to the site you requested.
We suggest you try the following:
Restart Site - Go to the Local by Flywheel app and restart the site you are attempting to access.
Contact us - If the issue persists please contact us.
Thanks a lot in advance for any help in understanding what’s going on.
Ps: I did restart the site with no success.
Actually, it’s working now, (WordPress updated to the latest version) after I restarted my computer.
