Need to recover MySQL database
Posted on 2010-09-14
I have a hard drive that has a Fedora Core 2 Operating System on it and had recently run out of space which has been a hell to fix...
I can login to the drive and copy files... The mySQL service won't start and I was just wondering if there was any way to just copy the files from the database to another server without doing a mysqldump.
If there is what files do I need? The database is called wikidb and I don't think it's very large.
There's a folder called mysql with a directory in there called wikidb... ist hat all I need or do I need something more?
Thanks a lot in advance!!
