Are you able to activate your network service ?
You can transfer them off the server using the network.

If you want to dump all the databases to a text file, use the mysqldump command.
There are many options, so take a look at the MAN page.
Code:
mysqldump --all-databases > databases.sql

If I remember correctly, you do not need to have the mySQL server running.
Try using mysqldump command.
If it does not work, you can always start the mySQLd service.
