Trellis on M1 Pro: vm start (Failed to connect to the host via ssh)

Hey all :slight_smile: I’d appreciate some help getting started. I’m new to Trellis and trying to get the local dev environment working on my M1 Pro.

I’m using the lima setup, seen as Vagrant requires Parallels on apple silicon and I don’t want to use that if I don’t have to! So I have python 3.9.6, limactl version 0.20.1, and trellis 1.11.1. Here’s the steps I’m taking:

  1. trellis new
  2. cd
  3. trellis init
  4. trellis vm start

At this point I get this error:

PLAY [WordPress Server: Install LEMP Stack with PHP and MariaDB MySQL] *********

TASK [Gathering Facts] *********************************************************
[WARNING]: Unhandled error in Python interpreter discovery for host default:
Failed to connect to the host via ssh: username@ Permission denied
fatal: [default]: UNREACHABLE! => {"changed": false, "msg": "Data could not be sent to remote host \"\". Make sure this host can be reached over ssh: username@ Permission denied (publickey).\r\n", "unreachable": true}

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, nor what the problem is. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
