We had a server crash that contained an in-house Wiki server. The OS is Windows 2003 Server with SP2.
I had installed MySQL (5.0) to be used by Wiki as it's database.
The back up we had for the server was only file based, meaning that I did not have a MySQL run database backup, only the windows file level data basked up.
I retored the backup to the new server and repected the original folder structure. Now, when I try to look at the MySQL database that Wiki used (wikidb) using "MySQL Control Centre", it is able to see that there is a datbase called Wikidb and that there are table in it, but when I try to look at any of the table I get a "table doesn't exist error.
I suspect that my database naiveté led me to believe that I could just copy the files over and the database would work,,,,,,,so what am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help,
