    moving database files from one server to another


    should be as simple as doing a dump and restore but here is the catch i do not have any dumps. I need to move the databases as is, from the /var/lib/mysql directory.

    The old server is completely dead all i have is the mysql data in the /var/lib/mysql folder how do i re-enter these databases into a running system.

    just dump your database, its a very simple step and i'm sure you can do it.
    you do not need to shut down your running system; just log in to your mysql-server and create new database, and then import from the dump-files....

    heheheee
