[mythtv-users] Problem with mythconverg_restore.pl

The main disk in my mythtv box died (root partition). The disk I used for
all the mythtv recordings is fine, which also has the mythconverg backups
(automatically created by mythtv). But I have no backup of the mysql data
folders themselves.

I'm running 31-fixes on Ubuntu 20.04.

After setting up a new disk with Ubuntu 20.04, installing 31-fixes (which
installs mysql), etc, I tried to run mythconverg_restore.pl. I get the
following error:

$ /usr/share/mythtv/mythconverg_restore.pl --drop_database
--create_database --name mythconverg --filename
mythconverg-1361-20210801074136.sql.gz --verbose

Does anyone know where I have gone wrong?

Thanks in advance,
