Backing up mysql without it actually being on


My server's hardrive failed yesterday and many of my files are corrupted. I now can not start mysql as it seems to be corrupted to. When I load mysql i get "Starting MySQL database server: mysqld/etc/init.dmysql: line 97: 236 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/safe_mysqld >/dev/null 2>&1 ... faild"

so I kind of need to find a way to backup my databases. can I do this without mysql being started? where exactly does mysql store its databases, and is there a file(s) i can just copy and paste in the same location in another server and would it work?


Thanks

Usually by default, mysql will store the actual db in /var/lib/mysql
