If Kara writes a new blog post ...

If Kara writes a new blog post, she will want to log into Wordpress to post it.

If she logs into Wordpress, she will see that she needs to update her Wordpress installation.

If she tries to update her Wordpress installation via wp cli, she will get weird cURL errors.

If she tries to investigate the cURL errors, she will discover her MySQL process is obsolete and needs updating via migrating data. This has nothing to do with her error which turns out to be a hosting issue, but she's still going to want to fix it.

If she tries to migrate data, she will have to make a new user for the new MySQL process.

If she makes a new user, she will have to figure out why she can't seen to grant it @#$%&*! privileges.

If she figures out all of the above, then voila, she will have successfully migrated her data and her website is loading correctly!

... and then she will want to write a new blog post all about the experience.

(By which time the cURL issue will have magically resolved itself, because it was completely unrelated ... but it's good web admin practice even for a n00b, right? laughingcrying.gif)
