I installed Local recently and was able to connect to Flywheel and see my site via Local. When I pulled the site, everything seemed to go well, but it took a very long time to upload. When I click on the ‘admin’ or ‘view site’ buttons, I am directed to pages that say " 404 Not Found nginx/1.16.0" and " 403 Forbidden nginx/1.16.0", respectfully.
Even though I never got an error for WordPress, I thought that I might not be connected to it, as the “WordPress Version” section on my “Overview” page has loading dots on it rather than a version of WP listed. I went to Local’s Docs about WP not being able to connect, and I ran the first command for Windows in my Command Line:
%LocalAppData%\Programs\local-by-flywheel\resources\extraResources\virtual-machine\vendor\docker\windows\docker-machine.exe stop local-by-flywheel
However, I was met with a response that said:
The system cannot find the path specified
I went into my file system and I found the
\extraResources\ file in a folder called
local-by-flywheel, but that file did not contain the rest of the file path specified in this command.
I have also looked into my file system where my site should have all of its files listed, but the file does not have all of my WordPress files that make up our site. Could the issue be that the files were imported incorrectly from Flywheel onto my computer? Surely that is one of my issues!
I am at a total loss here. I was really excited to find Local, but I have been stuck on this issue for days, and I really need to start developing our website. If anyone has any feedback or advice, I would really really love to hear it. Thanks!
