I'm Running Wordpress on a Bitnami VM. I updated the database user's password for my wordpress site. Everything except wp-cli works fine with that new password. Relevant part of wp-config.php looks like:

The site loads perfectly. I can do a MYSQL command line queries with the creds from wp-config.php, creating and dropping tables. Mysqldump works as well. However, wp-cli complains with error ERROR 1045 (28000) whenever I try to use it.

I've cleared the wp-cli cache.

I've checked the wp-cli debug info, and it's using the correct wp-config.php

The debug error is:

Debug (bootstrap): Running command: db import (0.059s)
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user '{db_username}'@'' (using password: YES)

Debian version: 9.11

Mysql version: Ver 8.0.18 for linux-glibc2.12 on x86_64

wp-cli version: WP-CLI 2.4.0

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?
