mysql dump FLUSH TABLES access denied
I've recently upgraded the server Ubuntu 20.04 updating the PHP version from 7.4 to 8.1. However, when I've attempted to export the MySQL database using the command
drush sql-dump --extra-dump=--no-tablespaces --result-file=../sql/db-2023-02-25.sql
I seeing the following response
Using bash script to overwrite files and directories
I had generated a backup of key directories on the server - see Create a Ubuntu backup shell script. With a backup in hand, now it was time to test how to unpack a backup and overwrite the directories.
First I unpacked the backup to a temporary directory tmp-cc.
Create a Ubuntu backup shell script
An approach to generating a backup server is using a shell script. A script can define directories to backup, and pass those directories as arguments to the tar utility, which creates an archive file. The archive file can then be moved or copied to another location.
Creating a bash script and executing it on OSX
Creating a bash script
Bash scripts are files containing code that tell your computer to do something. In this instance, I want to rename a batch files in a directory. Such as changing:

Instead having these files appear as:

How do you generate a .pem file from an existing .ppk key?
Is putty on your mac?
Check by running the command
Which will generate a response similar to

Don't have Putty, well easily fixed with homebrew.
npm dependencies and devDependencies
Currently I'm working through an app that has been abandoned by the developers. The client was getting no response from the dev company, when they asked if I could have a look. The app hadn't been updated for 18 months. So of course, a product that hasn't been updated in that timeframe is going to have a suite of npm update issues / conflicts.
Creating then adding a key to the remote repository
In this woalk through I am going to use GitHub. However, the steps are similar to a Bitbucket profile.
Logged in to your GitHub account, click your profile icon, located (at the time of this writing) on the top right corner.
Select Settings Click SSH and GPG Keys Click Add New SHH Key
A new page will open requiring
Type a title that represents the project you are working on.
Empty a file using command
First off, this isn't the only method to achieve the outcome of emptying a file.
Using a symbol : is a shell built-in command that is essence equivalent to the true command and it can be used as a no-op (no operation). It can be used as follows:
# : > filename.txt
# true > filename.txt
My initial file was as follows:
21548342 16 Mar 20:27 code.log
Post using the command

Changes in your .env file
Connecting your app to the new environment you need to make some tweaks in your .env file.
Change your DB_HOST to database. If you use MySQL or MariaDB Lando will create a database named laravel for you with a user laravel and the password laravel. The database section in your .env should look like this:
Mac: how to clear cache
Clear DNS Cache

Using Terminal or iTerm2 enter the following command:
