If you want to make a backup of your database or just want to create a dump to migrate your db to another provider, you need to do these steps: 1. Connect to your running application trough SSH. To do that you need to click this link on OpenShift and run the displayed command. 2. Create the dump using this command: mysqldump -u $OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_USERNAME -h $OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_HOST –password=$OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PASSWORD $OPENSHIFT_GEAR_NAME > dump.sql gzip dump.sql 3. After that you can scp the dump to any location you want.

If you are trying to upload a WordPress site to OpenShift you will have to make the following adjustments to your wp-config.php file: // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for WordPress */ define(‘DB_NAME’,$_ENV[‘OPENSHIFT_GEAR_NAME’]); /** MySQL database username */ define(‘DB_USER’, $_ENV[‘OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_USERNAME’]); /** MySQL database password */ define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, $_ENV[‘OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PASSWORD’]); /** MySQL hostname */ define(‘DB_HOST’, $_ENV[‘OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_HOST’] . ‘:’ . $_ENV[‘OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PORT’]); This will help WordPress to use the environment variables that OpenShift setup to connect to MySQL.

I have created 2 Fedora 21 images for the HummingBoard and Cubox-i. MATE LXDE I will create a XFCE based image too, soon. In order to extend the root filesystem on this image, you need to run: fdisk /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media << EOF d 3 n p 2001954 w EOF partprobe /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media e2fsck -f /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media3 resize2fs /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media3 More information about Fedora on these boards can be found on this github page
