I have a database on an Ultra10 Solaris machine. The drive with the operating system
failed and we had to re-install the OS. Now
Mysql doesnt work correctly when called from Java. Im thinking that we should
re-install mysql again and that will clear up the
problems. However, I dont want to lose my database. If I do another install on the
same directory will it wipe my existing
database? (I dont have room on the drives to backup the entire database.
