macOS 11 Big Sur Beta compatibility

Apple announced macOS 11 Big Sur yesterday, and subsequently released a beta for macOS developers to test with.

If you are a user of Local, do not update to the Big Sur beta - Local does not currently appear to work fully, at least in my experience.

@clay always happy to help test :+1:

And results in a site that says: “Error! WordPress installation failed.”

However, WordPress does appear to exist in the /app/public directory.

I’ve tried completely uninstalling Local and reinstalling it.
I’ve made sure that Xcode 12 is installed, with up-to-date Command Line Tools.

Likely related to this:

Me too.
Hope a new update today :slight_smile:

Chiming in here as well, I’m having the same errors thanks to Big Sur.

I noticed issues as the WordPress Version is always trying to load, then visiting a site it’s attempting to start with the cache buster but triggers a 502 Bad Gateway error via nginx.

The Nginx error log says this.

Hi all,

We have Big Sur up and running in VMWare Fusion and we’ll be looking into what we can do here during the beta.

Thanks everyone for the quick testing!

I was able to track down the offending dynamic library that caused this error on Big Sur. I created a fix, and it fixed the issue in my Big Sur VM. :smiley:

We’ll try to get an update out ASAP (maybe in Local Beta) that way you all can confirm that the fix indeed works.

You rock.

It’s bug whack-a-mole during macOS beta time, but I love that you prioritize it.

Thank you. :1st_place_medal:

Thanks a ton for the fast work, standing by ready to test!

I’m really surprised VirtualBox isn’t affected by any of the new kernel-related changes. Did you need to set the “less secure” version of OS booting?

Please help

Hi all,

Local Beta 5.6.4 is now available and includes support for macOS Big Sur! Please let us know how it works for you.

To access Local Beta linked above, you will need to be logged in and join the Local Beta group.

Hello,

I tried running Local 5.6.3 on my three Macs, my 21" 2017 iMac, my brand new MacBook Air, and my 15" 2017 MacBook Pro running the first Big Sur Beta and then today I had hoped that the second beta released today (20A4300b) would work but it’s not. I need it to run on at least one of my computers so I am now downgrading my MacBook Air back to Catalina. My fault for getting too excited about installing the betas on all my computers but today has not been productive. :frowning:
