my root server has gone offline and i needed to make a reinstall of the system some days ago. But as I said the server was offline and I could not make a backup through Webmin.
I had an FTP Account Setup that I was able to reach. I made a copy of the "var\lib\mysql" folder hoping to be able to just copy the contents to the new machine and have the mysql databases as i had them before. Although this is not the case. I am trying to copy in all possible ways but I does not seem right.
My backup database contains one more table then the one that is made after a clean install of the php script. When I restore the backup through root ssh connection Virtualmin shows me an error that the table does not exist (the one that was not there before).
This leads to a question: Where is the information about mysql saved?
P.S. I have an 'almost' default Virtualmin set installed on a clean Debian Etch Server.
