This problem began with a Rootkit that infected on linux server at my work. This box was used to connect to another Linux machine and run reports with PHP.
I have been playing with Linux at home for the past few months and that qualified as the Linux expert here. The programers that set up the box are long gone. The original box is set up using E-smith from a few years ago. I got the infected box to boot up, but the PHP reports would not run giving me a bad function. I researched this and everything pointed to PHP not being configured --with-mysql... I tried to get PHP reconfigured on the old box and it would not work, don't want to go into that nightmare again.
Here is where I am now. I have Mandrake 9.1 loaded onto a box, I have Apache2, running on it and I have PHP and Mysql installed. PHP is able to now connect to the other machine and run some of the reports, that I brought over from the original infected box. I am elated with this.
Apache2 I cannot get to browse a directory, have tried a lot of things and will try more.
Here is the next step and I am hoping I can get some help here.
Mysql, all the data bases are on the infected machine. I can access everything on that machine. I need to set up Mysql on the Mandrake box and somehow bring those Databases over.
1) What kind of files am I looking for on the old box, will they have a particular .extension?
2) Is there an EASY way to bring those over and set them up on the new Mysql server?
Be gentle with me I am new here and learning as I go.
