Retrieve MySQL data from command line


My computer has broken and I cannot login. I don't know what caused it.

I am using Fedora 14 and so it is easy to retrieve my files with the Fedora 14 installation disk under the 'restore' option. I cannot however, work out how to retrieve my MySQL data.

Would anyone be able to shed some light on this matter?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

The mysql databases are usually in /var/lib/mysql.

Make a proper backup of all databases using mysqldump. EricTra posted a link to a
script in this thread.


fedora 14, mysql
