Please double check the following steps if you encounter any issues.
On MacOS and Linux, you can find the correct PHP executable by running
which php in your terminal.
Make sure you have the correct PHP binary selected. This is the most common issue if you are running Tinkerwell on Windows.
Please check your private and public key path. We track down most connection issues to a misconfiguration of key pairs at Vagrant, Homestead or the remote server. Both keys must be in the same directory.
The "passphrase" input field is for password protected keys and not for server passwords.
On macOS you can show all hidden files by pressing
CMD + SHIFT + ..
If Tinkerwell is broken in some way and you want to install it from scratch, make sure to delete the config files that hold your settings, connections and caches.
Tinkerwell stores data at:
Linux: /home/<Username>/.config/Tinkerwell Windows: C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Tinkerwell Mac: /Users/<Username>/Library/Application Support/Tinkerwell
The settings are stored in the
vuex.json file. Renaming this file to something else creates a fresh version on the next app start.
