Thank you, Jota. I ended up following your recommendation and just creating a new VM and migrating the database/content.
Just wanted to flag a small discrepancy on the how-to resource you shared. Initially, the directions call for the original database to be backed up as a file named
backup.sql. But later on in the instructions, the filename in the command you use to import that backup has the filename as
Other than that, all is working well— except that I cannot connect to the new database using Sequel Pro. I was able to do it in the original instance (and some other BItnami VMs that I use for other applications), but for some odd reason this one gives an Access Denied error:
Unable to connect to host 127.0.0.1 because access was denied.
Double-check your username and password and ensure that access from your current location is permitted.
MySQL said: Access denied for user 'root'@'127.0.0.1' (using password: YES)
I tried adding an SSH key to both the VM and the project, but no luck. Any idea what the problem might be?
