    /home/virtfs is a file system for the jailshell users. You will see there hardlinks to some important binaries and libraries. This is just to provide a limited shell environment. If you have backup of your database then you can restore it from phpmyadmin or ask your host to restore the database.

    Hello :)

    You may want to try manually extracting the backup archive and reviewing the "mysql" directory to see if the database was backed up properly. The links you see in the virtfs directory are not likely to be of much help.

    Thank you.
