I built my wibsite thrue Bitnami and I just set up my hosting account with Blue host to take it live. It' s now asking me to upload my .sql file to my database.
I can' t find this one file. There are a few that are named similarly. Can anyone help by giving it' s exact location?

Hi, The sql file is a database backup. You can create it using phpMyAdmin application. Go to http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin and log in the application. By default is "root" and password the same that you set during the installation.
Go to bitnami_wordpress or the application that you are using to build your website and click on "Export". This will create a sql file that you can upload to your hosting provider.
You can also use the command line to create this file, you can find more info at http://wiki.bitnami.com/Components/MySQL#How_to_create_a_database_backup.3f

Thank you for your response. The link you sent me: http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin doesn' t work. It takes me to a blank page. When you say export the bitnami_wordpress folder, do you mean to compress it?

Which BitNami flavor are you using? Native installer, virtual machine or cloud image?
