How to copy mysql db's from hardisk to new server?
My server was cracked and left in a non bootable state. I've built a new server w/ a fresh install and have mounted the old hard disk so that I can recover data.
I'm trying to get the old databases (/var/lib/mysql) and somehow move or import them into the new mysql server. Any of the advice that I've found so far has not worked because it all requires the old server to be running (hotcopy, mysqldump, etc, etc).
Does anyone have any suggestions for moving the databases as they exist in the old filesystem and importing them into the new server?
