    Unanswered: Restoring Database

    I have a computer on my network that ran Windows XP Pro & MySQL 5.0 (I think). The OS crashed and I cannot boot from it. However, I have access to the hard drive. I have a database on that server and have located the database (let's call it "my_db") name as a folder ("my_db") in the mysql "data" folder. How can I convert the folder ("my_db") with the .frm & .opt files to the SQL to move the database to another server?

    I thank you in advance for your help and really appreciate any response you provide me.

    Inside your folder you should have your table files, just grab them and insert it back at another MySQL\data\db\ folder, then just set the permissions back to the database and tables.

    I created the database from the MySQL command prompt, copied the database files, and tried again but to no avail. It didn't work.

    If I send someone the files, can someone convert the database for me to the SQL format?

    THanks.
