What’s New in 2.0.5

Local 2.0.5 skipped the auto updater. Here’s what changed:

Bug Fixes

  • macOS: Addressed a problem where WordPress plugin, theme, and core updates would fail when using Faster Docker Volumes (NFS)
    • Note: If you had this issue, restart the affected site(s) after updating to 2.0.6.
  • Sentry error reporter would sometimes cause Local to crash. We fixed this!
  • We fixed an occasional issue where the hosts updater would fail.
  • Fixed an issue where sites would fail to create or start. This was due to a timing issue where Local would sometimes start or create the site container before the Docker network exists.


  • Windows: Improved the way elevated processes are ran. You’ll now see exactly what process is being ran and not just Cmd.exe
  • Windows: Fixed an issue where generic archives (including Flywheel backups) would fail to import
  • Whenever the hosts file is not writable for any reason, Local will now display an error dialog to notify you that it failed. Also, if it detects an EBUSY error, which is typically caused by firewalls locking the hosts file on Windows, it will explain what happened.
