Subject:MySQL databases lost?
View as plain text  
My MySQL databases appear to have been overwritten somehow, and I am 
very distressed about this.  Please tell me that there is a way to 
recover this data.

I am using Mac OS X, and recently upgraded to PHP 4.2.  I have been 
accessing MySQL from PHP and phpMyAdmin for a while, occasionally using 
the command line as well.  I don't recall making and dramatic changes to 
any of these files recently.

When I went to my web site today, I saw the error message 'could not 
select database'.  When I checked out the databases in MySQL, this is 
what I got:

mysql> show databases;
+---------------------+
| Database            |
+---------------------+
| CarbonUFSVolumeInfo |
| mnta                |
| mntb                |
| vi.recover          |
+---------------------+
4 rows in set (0.04 sec)

What could have happened here?  Did I delete a crucial file?  Did it 
somehow get overwritten?  I used to have four databases.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.  I don't know what other 
information would be helpful, but will do my best to provide it if 
anyone asks.

Thank you,

Greg Westin
