Transfered database tables not found!? Help!


Sep 15, 2009
So my hard drive crashed,:eek: but I was able to salvage from it all my files, including my database folder called dbAnotherBlog in the data folder. So I took this dbAnotherBlog folder and put it on the new hard drive in the data folder.:)

I have Wamp installed, and I restarted its services, and navigated to phpMyAdmin. I can see the link for my database dbanotherblog(4) which means it has 4 tables -- that's good. But when I click on that link to look inside the DB, then no tables are found in that db, and now the link says dbanotherblog(0).:confused:

The drop down box in phpMyAdmin which lets you change databases also says dbanotherblog(4).

What should I do??? Please help, I'm a newbie in this, so please give me detailed instructions, thank you!:cool:

I am sorry to see that you are having problems, in this particular case we would need to take a look at the data, so submitting a ticket would be the best way, you can do that via the link at the bottom of this post.

Thank you,
