this is what i tried, step by step,
1.made a site backup using drush ( drush ard command)
2. downloaded the archive using sftp
3.opened the archive
4.made a new database and imported the downloaded database in to the newly created one.
5.changed the database user and password in settings.php as root, coz mamp has a user already created my default
then i tried to run the site--- i got an error, after some online research, came to knw i had to change some more stuff in settings.php, it was the unix socket, so it changed that to ' unix_socket' => '/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock'
got the site to run, but it looks very weird
a bunch of stuff is missing
and going further it became this
when i checked the logs these were the 2 errors
i have tried this before with normal drupal installs and it worked fine, is there anything specific with bitnami i need to do to get it working correctly?
also i tried this 3 times , even with just a very plain site with no changes at all, and still get the same thing
please help !!!
