# How to access the SQL database:
$db_host = "<hostname>"; # where is the database?
$db_port = 3306; # which port to use
$db_name = "<dbname>"; # name of the MySQL database
$db_user = "<dbuser>"; # user to attach to the MySQL database
I guess the server is located on the other system.. Should I run my command locally over there? I need to migrate this database and/or copy the data out... Thanks for your help. Looks like I need to google what's next in terms of dumping the DB
What'd I'd Like to do is,
1 - Export the data from TestRunner to xml / html,
2 - bring up a new install of Bugzilla 4.x and testopia, using the default Local Mysql DB instead of the current setup.
3 - import the data somehow into testopia.
