What issue or error are you experiencing?
I’m testing my site on Local for the WP Engine mysql8 upgrade. That site is a multisite so I imported it to Local manually. I’m following this documentation. I’m on this step “Drop the Local database tables and manually import the database from the backup by SSH’ing into the container using wp db commands.” and I got a little lost. Can someone break this step down for me a little more please? Maybe help with screenshots?
What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc
Attach your Local Logs here (Help Doc - Retrieving Local’s Log)
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
Apologies for the vagueness there! I’ve expanded the help doc to include a few more details to help make things a bit more clear.
In replacement of “Drop the Local database tables and manually import the database from the backup by SSH’ing into the container using wp db commands”, I’ve broken things down like this:
- The wp-content folder that is created with the new blank site you can rename
wp-content-old or just delete it. Copy the wp-content folder from your backup to the newly created site’s location to take its place.
- Copy the correct SQL file to the site root (App>Public).
- Within Local, click
Open Site Shell
- Import your Database with
wp db import your-database-filename.sql
