Hi everybody.

I have, please, a MySQL database that I need to convert from version 5.5 to 5.6; it's the database of my Wordpress site that I'm transferring from my old hosting provider that have MySQL 5.5 to a new one that requires MySQL 5.6.

So, I downloaded this database on my computer, installed both versions of MySQL server 5.5 and 5.6, and I'm trying to use MySQL Workbench to convert/migrate it.
I tried the "Schema Transfer Wizard" and the "Migration Wizard" but don't know how to use them; sorry I'm very beginner.

For example in the "Schema Transfer Wizard", when I select the source and destination MySQL server and click on Next, I find just a "Test" schema in the "Schema Selection" phase. How can I get my local database showed there to select it?

Could you please help me; I'm really stuck!
Thank you very much.
