    MySQL backup

    Hey,

    I had a bit of a problem with a new MySQL install that wiped the original data.

    I do have a back up but the bad news is it's not a SQLdump it's the actual mysql directory and the data directory still seems to have the data.

    Anyway I can restore this to the new DB. Should you just be able to copy the data folder over? Haven't been able to get this to work yet, having other problems.

    Thanks

    Yep, you should be able to copy the files into the right directory
