Heads-up! Local’s router is having trouble starting Error on Local By Flywheel
Anyone here experienced this issue after installing local by flywheel? Please help me solve it. Please see attached snapshot.
Heads-up! Local’s router is having trouble starting. View the router log file for more details.
[emerg] 24560#188: bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (10013: An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions)
I hope somebody can help me solve it. I tried to search and solve it myself, no luck.
Thanks in advance.
Using a Mac, I had to update permissions on the error.log file. Cleared it up.
Thanks for contributing, @Chris. I haven’t tested local on Mac.
Yes! This works for me to on Mac. Thanks for this.
I agree with Brett. I’ve experienced the same port conflict when I was using XAMPP or MAMP.
There are two (2) workarounds that solved the issue.
OPTION 1: Set Router Mode to Localhost. This will allow Local to automatically find available port on your computer. Downside, your local site installation will use localhost as domain name instead of your site domain. But it shouldn’t matter in the development. See short clip and instruction below:
OPTION 2: Stop HTTP function on Windows (I’m not sure how to do it on Mac or Linux).
I just used option 1 and it worked perfectly.
I found that port 443 was using by vmware-hostd.exe. I removed VMWare and now its working fine.
I haven’t tried this option. So far, the above solutions worked for me. Thanks for sharing this on this forum.
Glad it worked out for you, seogod. Take care.
Yes. That can be a solution too. Finding out other services that conflict with Local on the port required. It should be fine if you don’t need the other program. Other way is to remove the conflicting program, install and run local for it to use the port first and install the other program again. Haven’t tried it for local yet but I think it should work. I have used it with both xampp and mamp before conflicting with Skype (and I needed Skype).
how to I fins conflict programs to the local? I have same issue
The error means there is something using port 80. Mostly streaming, chat applications use this port. You have to check it on your system whether you are using Mac OS, Linux or Windows.
I’m on windows machine and found that it was used by skype. I use the classic one so, I managed to change the default port it’s using.
Thank you! Amazing fix – worked right away! You’re the best.
Glad this forum helped.
it isn’t working for me
This site can’t be reached localhost refused to connect.
Hi @Abdi, may I know the version of Local you are using? Also, please provide the error log so I can check the possible cause of the issue. Thank you.
Just watch the video… You will get it solved.
