Can't import SQL DB with WP-CLI due to Access Denied (Error 1045)

I have been in the process of moving a load of WordPress sites over from a tsoHost server to Ploi using WP-CLI and, after much trial and error, I have now managed to transfer 11/12 of the sites. The last one (, at the last step is throwing an error though... This has been my process so far: PuTTy to existing server and zip -r * phpMyAdmin and export the appropriate SQL database (wwwadultsmareach_wp_qexte.sql) Go to Ploi server and create new domain "", project type "WordPress" SFTP the ZIP and SQL files to the new domain folder PuTTY to Ploi server and unzip Edit wp-config.php so that DB connections settings point to instead of localhost: NOTE: in previous sites the hostname has just been localhost but for this site (for some reason) it is localhost:3306, not sure if that's the issue as that's the only thing I spotted different from this and previous sites... In PuTTY use wp db import wwwadultsmareach_wp_qexte.sql at this point I get the error: Error: Failed to get current SQL modes. Reason: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'wwwadultsmareach_wp_logbn'@'localhost' (using password: YES) Strange that it is still trying to login @localhost and not To try and fix this, as it happened this way with a couple of other sites, I went to the ploi server and added a new database with the correct name, user and password, then went to "edit" and added it to the site. This then allowed me to succesfully use the wp db import database.sql command, but that won't work this time... Can anyone spot what might be the issue here? I also tried putting define( 'DB_HOST', '' ); in wp-config.php but that didn't help either. Thanks.
