Dev environment - license key issue

Hey, I'm getting the message:

Sorry, your license key isn't valid for this domain.

When working on a local environment on my mac. I've double checked the development domain to be in the Perch account, which is exactly what I am using as a local domain. Just upgraded to Perch 3 and want to test it all out before deploying...

Any tips?

Sorry I should re-iterate, this is at /perch when trying to log in.

Clear the DNS cache and try again. Possibly reboot mac to shakeout any dns. Also check your DNS network settings, maybe change them to google defaults.

Is there not a full message giving you the value to add to your license config?

Have you tried to enable debug? Remember, Debug is your friend. It will output details of what is failing.

Another thing to try... unplug/disconnect your computer from the internet and try to login while disconnected... if you are able to login then you will have isolated if it's something in your dev environment or a problem connecting to the license server at


UPDATE: SORRY DREW... responding at same time
