Local by Flywheel is a great way to develop locally using #WordPress. In this case “locally” means on your computer, so you don’t need a domain name, #hosting account or internet connection to develop your website. But you will need a domain name and a hosting account to share your creation with the world once it’s finished. Some great features of Local by Flywheel include blueprints, live links, customized server environments, and more. Local #webdevelopment can make your workflow a lot faster.

  2. Where was I all this time with Xammp? I really needed efficiency? Creating sub domains for clients to view you work is HECTIC!!! This should be my new normal, after Covid, ofcourse.

  3. thanks so much
    Can I make a live link using local server only by flywheel without real hosting ??

  4. Hi,
    Admin dashboard does not work. I got this error. Can you advise? Thanks
    Not Found
    The requested URL /wp-admin/ was not found on this server.

    And view website just shows "It works!"

  5. This is great! I just installed their latest Local "Lightning", and it is indeed lightning fast… it's kinda bizarre actually, me being able to make changes (locally) and not having to wait 10-15 seconds after every change I make / page I visit. Truly a gamechanger in terms of development speed! Here's my issue/question though… I quickly made a local version of one of my sites from scratch (using Elementor), whereas my live site used Brizy Pro. I installed WPVivid Backup on both online and Local, and then Did a "Restore" on the live site using the Local backup. It worked, BUT… it didn't actually overwrite the live site, it kinda merged the two. What I mean is… all the live site data (posts/plugins, etc.) are still there… for example, Brizy Pro was still in the online version (except it was now deactivated and instead the Local version's Elementor was activated). Is there a way to completely OVERWRITE the live site with the local site?

  6. Hi Bjorn! Not sure if I commented before, but I've been going through a bunch of your tutorials this past couple months. You've quickly emerged as my favorite WordPress Youtuber. Seriously, your vids are the best out there… so thorough and clear… always taking us through the process step-by-step. Just wanted to say thank you for putting out such great content… before I comment specifically about Local by Flywheel, which I'm about to do in a second 🙂

  7. Sir I got an issue after installation of local flywheel ony pc. It shows erro saying EPERM error: can't copy file and the failed to run. Kindly give me a solution.

  8. Sir i am using Localwp and i created one website and restore backup file which is 9gb to local host with the help of all in one migration pro . but when process is 100% it shown "Unable to import Your PHP is 32-bit. In order to import your file, please change your PHP version to 64-bit and try again." Sir how to fix that issue?

  9. Hello, Bjorn,

    I use Win10. I am getting an error message saying "Heads Up! Local's router is having trouble starting up". What do I do?

  10. thanks for the video, but unless i missed it, i dont see the transition and/or link between the initial main site and the back up created and vice versa, can you comment on this please?

  11. Ron

    Hi Bjorn! At 8:55 minute you do something that opens 5 pages in separate tabs. How did you do this?

  12. I get the following error when trying to run the website and I can't figure out how to solve it. I've read up on it as much as I understand and I know it's PID4 but I don't know what to do about it. The error is: Heads-up! Local's router is having trouble starting.

  13. I joined your facebook group I got an aggressiveness thank you. AS I SUFFER FROM DYSLEXIA I LEFT YOUR GROUP THANKS YOU. NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT JOIN THIS GROUP IF YOU ARE A VISUAL LEARNER WARNING!!!!!!!!!

  14. how to change default 80 port

  15. Hey Bjorn, How do you delete a local domain if you make a mess of setting up? is it easy to do you just tell it to stop and start the process all over again?
    Thanks Andy

  16. Hi, how can I solve this?

  17. This wordpress-course.local page can’t be foundNo web page was found for the web address: http://wordpress-course.local/wp-admin

    Search Google for wordpress course local admin

    HTTP ERROR 404

    when I click on admin or view site this is what comes up. I've tried the flywheel community but they couldn't help and now I am googling and now youtube help videos.

    Do you have any suggestions. I am working on Windows


  18. Thanks Bjorn. Outstanding video.
    Did I miss something though? Local Flywheel wants $275 a year to host a single site. They do it on GoDaddy and says they don't support the idea of using localhost. I was unable to get into wp-admin without paying them.
    So is local server environment with the free tool no longer available?

  19. I have tried adding a second site to work on another template but it simply hangs/buffers when connecting to admin. Is there something else I should do in order to add more sites?But I can open the first site I created without any problem.

  20. Hi Bjorn, I've started playing with Local by Flywheel to build our Drama Group site. I have tried the Live Link using a different browser, but I only seem to view a basic blank WP install rather than the page I have built. Do you have any idea where I may have gone wrong in setting things up? Cheers.

  21. Kudos Bjorn, awesome tutorial. Quick query from me: I accidentally delete my entire public files under local sites….any possibility to retrieve it?

  22. Hi Bjorn,
    with the plugin wp-db-backup I want to backup my database to my comp and then zip it and then download my folder / wp content via ftp on my computer and then zip it to load it into local by flywheel.
    is this a good way because my site is 1000mb large.
    and how do I do this in local by flywheel.
    Greetings and thanks for answer.

  23. Hi Bjorn,
    you have a video where you can show how you can use ftp to transfer your live site to local by flywheel because the live site is 1000mb in size and therefore cannot upload with the free version of flywheel.

    hope to hear from you
    thank you in advance.

  24. Have you got one that shows how to upload to a host after the developent has finished?

  25. Giving this a go now. I used to use bitnami wordpress stack but this looks so much more fun! Quick Question. Is it easy to swap the same sites between installs on different computers? I use both Mac and Pc – I prefer recording screencasts on mac but editing sites on PC. Is there a cloud sync feature or would I just manually export and import them?

    Thanks for the great Video!!!

  26. Fantastic tutorial – thanks so much!

  27. Thanks for uploading the video bro.

  28. Great Video! I was wondering if anyone else also experienced that when sending the Live Link to someone, the person could not see any Images that belong to the Website? I did research but could not find a solution. Do you know what that could cause? Thanks in advance!
