is the grub loader not load for virtualbox?
Thank you for using Bitnami. The team is going to investigate this problem with the bitnami account's password and will update this thread as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can migrate the data from that virtual machine to a new one by following this guide, will that work for you?
I noticed bitnami-wordpress-4.9.1 does not have any grub loader while bitnami-wordpress-4.9.8-3 does have grub loader.
Before I proceed to do the export/import, is there any update you share regarding the investigation?
Hi @xFunky, In this case, you can: - Use a linux live iso to boot that virtual machine, - Mount the the disk, - chroot to it - change the passwords - reboot booting from disk now.
I hope you can fix the problem.
