The above are the errors that I'm getting after importing my freshly dumped database from Bluehost (done through phpmyadmin, both with quick and with custom export methods).
Info Bluehost versions:
Local setup (no MAMP, XAMP, WAMP or LAMP) versions:
MySQL 5.5.25 (found through command line: mysql which version)
Could it be related to incompatibility of versions? Or do you think the origin of this problem lies elsewhere? Also, once logged in to MySQL I cannot use mysqldump but if I'm not logged in, I can run this type of command:
mysqldump -u [USERNAME] -p [DBNAME] | gzip > [/path_to_file/DBNAME].sql.gz
Is that normal?
Anyways, I believe you can see how a newbee I am here so please bear with me.
