Using mysqldump with Wordmove

I’m working with the ruby gem Wordmove and when I run the command to pull files from the live server I get this error:
sh: mysqldump: command not found.

I assume this is because the script doesn’t know where to execute the mysqldump command. What path should I use in the alias?? Not sure if there is a single path or if each site has it’s own path.


Did you have any resolution to this? Over a month and no response. I guess there’s just no support for local?

Any news or resolutions would be amazing?

Still stuck with the following error: mysqldump: Got error: 1049: Unknown database 'local' when selecting the database

I am trying to get this work but i have a similar problem with the mysql dump ( local
mysqldump: Got error: 2002: Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket). Anyone have a solution? thanks.

Here’s a related topic that has some info on how to use Wordmove with Local in case you’re stuck: Using WordMove to mirror sites

In case anyone lands on this post and is still struggling to get Wordmove db push/pull working with Local, this link may help:

I ended up resolving various issues with a lot of help from the Wordmove.
If you use another environment like AMPPS and/or Zsh then you may have additional steps to check.

Hope this helps someone out!
