In this section, we will talk about how to fix your project if the

The user should create a
wwwfolder in the root of the project or restore a previous backup of the folder.
wwwfolder will be created automatically during the transpiling process. Transpiling is triggered automatically after selecting a project from the project list in the Monaca Localkit if the option is enabled.
This solution works only if your project exists on Monaca Cloud.
- 1.From Localkit, select a project from the project list.

The problem might be occured with Localkit 4.1.0 and up. Prior to this version, the preview window is served with
file://protocol from the project file. However, this
file://is not supported for project using
vitetool. Therefore, in Localkit 4.1.0, we have switched to
http://protocol to support newer tool and framework. With this change, there might be some browser cache problems causing the preview windows to remember the previous served projects not the current one as the url is using the same address (by default http://127.0.0.1:8002/) for all the projects.
To resolve this problem, you can "disable cache" in the chrome developer tools of the preview window and click "refresh" to reload the preview window when needed.
