I bet everyone is getting sick of me
Anyway, I’m just recovering from a server crash right as I was implementing my new dual proc system and transfering everything over.
Here’s my issue:
For some reason Fedora decided to stop booting from my old server. The hard drive is good, and all of the files on it are fine. I was able to mount the drive in another system and have complete access to my files.
I restored everything as far as the web pages and files go but am having some problems with my SQL databases. I do NOT have a recent sql dump for these databases. The only ones I have are about a week old and I really cant afford to loose a weeks worth of data.
Now the question for you guys is, how can I restore my databases from my old hard drive? I dont know TOO much about mySQL but isn’t a directory I can just overwrite with the directory from my old drive?
All of the usernames/groups are exactly the same as on the other machine as is all the domain names and logins.
Can someone give me an idea on what to try? Thanks!
