Location of Data Files for phpRecipebook

Postby droth49 » Thu Feb 05, 2015 7:34 am

I took down my old server and failed to backup the data for phpRecipebook. I still have the hard drive. Can I locate the data files on the old drive and import them to the new system?

Potentially. The data is in the MySQL database. You might be able to find it in the file system.

Try looking in /var/lib/mysql/.

It's best to have a SQL dump of the database to restore, but since you don't have that option hopefully this will work.
