Hi. I am using Local 5 (with Apache) by Flywheel as my development server. I am trying out the latest Kirby (plainkit, download 7/27/2020). I can create a new account fine, but when I try to log in to the panel at kirby.local/panel I get the error “The Panel cannot connect to the API.” I have a workaround, but this seems like a bug as I have no problem on any non-panel page. Same problem with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Firefox and Safari have no plugins/extensions.
I view all non-panel pages at http://kirby.local. But to get to the panel, I have to use kirby.local:10039/. Finding that port number was not easy, and I still don’t have the port number for HTTPS. Each Local 5 install of Kirby will probably get a different port number, so it is a problem. This is probably a “Local 5” issue, but I don’t understand why I can access the front-end without the port number, but it is required to access the panel.
Even when using the port number, when Kirby logs me out, I can’t log back in. In this case there is no error, but it refuses my username/passsword combo. I have to delete account and re-create it.
