I’ve hung on to Local by Flywheel, and this week I tried Local Lightning. It’s been underwhelming.
First, I realized that Sequel Pro no longer works because it doesn’t support MySQL 8. No warnings that the MySQL version had been upgraded and that I had to download a nightly build of Sequel Pro.
Now, I find that
wp db commands don’t work too. Here’s what I get:
$ wp db export mysqldump: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect
I thought Local was supposed to be fully baked and a safe upgrade from Local by Flywheel. What gives?
