honour port setting in mythconverg restore and backup scripts

Post by metaron » Sat Mar 28, 2020 4:34 pm

While trying to move my mythbackend sql database to my syndology nas (which uses port 3307 rather than 3306 for its sql server installation) I discovered that mythconverg restore and backup perl scripts don't honour the port setting in config.xml when trying to log in to the mysql server (they just use the default port when logging in).

So I fixed the problem (tested and working using my mythtv/31 installation) and have submitted a pull request on Github (mythtv pull request 193)

Unfortunately I don't have a trac account and can't seem to work out how to create one so I've fallen at the next hurdle.
The 'log in with github' button doesn't seem to work either.

Anyone out there able to enlighten me, or failing that, to submit a trac ticket on my behalf?

The login via github button works for me. I do remember the first time I used it, it took a little while to login (from memory less than a couple of minutes). Note my github login is via password.

Just to add

Using Firefox on Xubuntu 18.04

If you can't get it to work, let me know and I can create the trac ticket.

The first time I tried I got a prompt and selected my github account. I even have an e-mail from github telling me it has authorized mythtv to access my details. But clicking on the trac github login prompt now just gives me "We are sorry... Invalid username or password." (I'm running Firefox of some sort using gentoo on an rpi4, so not exactly a mainstream solution ;-). If you're happy to trac the issue for me in the meantime, that would be great.

Thanks Mike.
I can't log in to trac via my ipad using safari either, so suspect it's a job for a trac admin.
