Please, I am unable to restore my wordpress backup into the virtual site i created with desktop server. Each time I try to restore, I get the error message:
Restore backup from: Aug 21, 2015 11:02
Retrieving (if necessary) and preparing backup files…
The backup archive files have been processed, but with some errors. You will need to cancel and correct any problems before retrying.
Backup of: http://testsite.com/testdirectory (version: 4.3)
Error: The database backup uses MySQL features not available in the old MySQL version (5.1.41) that this site is running on. You must upgrade MySQL to be able to use this database

It is OK now. It was not version 3.8 I installed. It was the earlier version.
I now installed version 3.8 and the error is no more there.
The only issue now is that the wordpress dashboard is very slow. I am still monitoring it as I am opening dashboard menus.
Sorry for the misinformation and thank you for your kind support.
