    I automatically backup all my accounts to an FTP. I've chosen the option to back up mysql per account AND the entire MySql directory.

    I think the account mysql is in the site archive, but where is the entire mySql directory? I have other databases that are not specifically attached to an account.

    This should be in the dirs folder then _var_lib_mysql_ provided you've ticked entire mysql directory in the backup config and a backup has run since. We also tend to have "Backup Configuration Files (not needed for account restoration)" ticked which also dumps into daily/dirs and daily/files but afaik this shouldn't effect the MySQL option.
