Hello there, i’m having the same issue with Local v5.0.5 (Mac version).
After creating a new site following that bedrock & flywheel video, i updated the
site.conf.hbs (since root is not defined on
nginx.conf.hbs) just the way you said @clay.
Then i restart Local and start the bedrock site, but nothing changes, Database tab still shows “Unable to find DB_NAME in app/public/wp-config.php” even after updating the root to:
root "/Users/alejandro/Local Sites/bedrock/app/bedrock/web";
Also i was not able to update the path that shows for the site inside Local, still shows
~/Local Sites/bedrock, how i’m i supossed to do that?
Am i missing something or is this method not possible with this Local version?
Update: even if the database tab shows those “Unable to find…” the site is actually working (site and admin), so i guess it’s a Local warning that uses the default path just for that check?
