retreiving mysql db from non booting HDD
I've got a box that won't boot anymore, trying to find the solution using Knoppix failed since nothing is written to logs that explains the boot failure so that's a dead end.
I'm trying to get the mysql db's from that disk. Is it possible to just mount the drive using an other box and copy them (the drive can still be browsed normally using knoppix) to the new disk?
What would be the location of the db's and is it possible to load them into mysql on the newly installed box (same distro same versions)?
