Where are the mysql database stored?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

While reinstalling uniform server, I renamed my original directory from /userve to /userve.old

 

In mysql/data was what I thought my phpbb and zencart database as there were folders with those names in there.

 

When I reinstall a fresh copy of uniform server to /userve, my old databases are not in userve/diskw/usr/local/mysql/data but when I use phpmyadmin, it 'seems' to access my old databases in /userve.old/diskw/usr/local/mysql/data/zencart

 

Is this correct behaviour?

 

Can I copy across my old database from userve.old/diskw/usr/local/mysql/data into the /userve/diskw/usr/local/mysql/data ?

 

Or leave them alone

 

Can I delete userve.old/mysql/data??

 

Thanks

Alan

Hi,

 

Found it I think.

 

I didn't remove the desktop icons, when I renamed the directory to .old and somehow, the desktop shortcut tracked the name change so I was running the .old database.
