  • problem restoring my db using shh/telnet

    Ok I am using that moving servers guide but on step 3 when I am entering in the command it says No such file or directory.

    This is the command I put in:

    mysql -uUSERNAME -p newdbname < /home/public_html/killbox/mysqldump.sql

    Is there anything I need to change in that? And I know I got that file in the right directory.

    I'm assuming you use cpanel for your site. If that's not right, let me know. Add the part in bold below to the command. (of course edit it when your correct username)

    mysql -uUSERNAME -p newdbname < /home/cpanelusername/public_html/killbox/mysqldump.sql

      Ok I just tried that and now it says Enter password:

      When it says that I can't type in anything so I pushed enter and then it says ERROR 1044: Access denied for user: '@localhost' to database 'newdbname'

      This is my first time doing this so I don't know what is going on.

        This error means either:

        1. One or more of the following is wrong in your config.php file:


        If you are unsure of what the appropriate values are then you will need to ask your web host.

        2. Or that this db user is not assigned to that database or does not have permission to access MySQL. Since each web host is different, if you do not know how to do this then contact your web host for help.
