Moving mysql datadir to dropbox, tables in databases not showing
Posted on 2014-02-10
I edited the mysql datadir in the my.cnf configuration file in c:\Xampp\mysql\bin\my.cnf to a different location.
I moved the datadir location to my dropbox folder to have the same databases on multiple computers, but some of the database now have no tables in them, on computer(s) they were not created on (although the folders of the database do contain the database table files).
It doesn't matter is the db is innodb or myisam i believe, both types either have all the table showing or none.
What is causing this?
What can i do to make this work? ("syncing the databases through dropbox"?)
