restoring a mysql database, have backup but dont even know what file or where to look
short story : my server crashed, a new hd was placed , linux and all was reinstalled , and i'm very lucky as the admin was able to create a whole copy of the old hd and place it on the new one. Its under /home/restore and I already found most of the things (images and so) I need to restore my websites , but have nothing about the mysql databases so far.
so my question is now... where and for what should I start looking ? I'm totally not experienced with linux , I have no idea what files I should go after and where they are supposed to be. And I dont how to copy it all to my new account on that server so I can use the old database on my "new" sites.
