Hello all. Very noob and “learning as I go” kinda user here.
I installed DevKinsta using WSL 2 on Win 10 Pro to create a local WordPress development environment. I was having the painfully slow lag time with every page update experience so many have experienced. I found this link on here and followed it:
[Why my local site is so slow? - Bug Reports - DevKinsta Community]
First I enabled Hyper-V and enabled an external virtual switch per the first instructions to the letter. No problems.
Rebooted my computer.
Then I backed up and deleted my one and only website, per instructions.
Then I restarted DevKinsta. Three images kept getting fed into Docker. I clicked them all and hit the “run” button. It seemed to work but the second after they loaded, they seemed to exit and I was stuck in a loop of continually having to check them to run and hit run but then the loop would start over without any tangible progress. It would result in the “DK0005” error.
I followed the instructions on the website: Manually restart Docker Desktop and then restart DevKinsta. I did. Nothing changed.
As I write this, I opened Hyper-V manager for the first time to make sure it was still working. It shows a VM machine “DockerDesktopVM”. I then tried to restart the Docker desktop with the Hyper-V manager and now all of a sudden Docker fails to start. I double checked to make sure the WSL2 option isn’t selected in Docker. Same error.
I uninstalled Docker and reinstalled. Rebooted computer. WSL 2 option still not checked.
Started up DevKinsta. Still same error.
I’m really REALLY at a loss. The only thing left would be for me to uninstall DevKinsta and reinstall. But I literally just spent the last 48 hours installing, updating etc etc all themes, plugins, etc for WordPress. I would HATE to lose all that time.
Anyone have any ideas? I would be so grateful. Again, I’m a noob and learning as I go tutorial by tutorial so I apologize if I’m not doing something obvious.
Thank you so much!
