Can't Pull Website Files for WP Engine as Errors Occur

I’m trying to pull website files from WP Engine for https://mjstaging2.wpengine.com/ (a password-protected website) to Local. I have a 2015 MacBook Pro running macOS Catalina.

However, I can’t successfully pull files to Local as I run into the errors below (from the error log):

I already have files from my git repo in the directory I want to pull to as well.

Can you please assist me with solving this issue?

Hi @risingPhoenix1979, are you pulling to an existing Local Site or pulling a site fresh into Local?

HI @flyjack,

I’m trying a WP Engine site using Local into a directory that has already has the following files (it’s a git repo from Github):
.git
.gitignore
README.md

Also I’m going the following error too with my database:
Database Name: Unable to find DB_NAME in app/public/wp-config.php
Username: Unable to find DB_USER in app/public/wp-config.php
Username: Unable to find DB_PASSWORD in app/public/wp-config.php
