Server :: Moving Mysql Databases From Old Hdd?

Mar 25, 2010

I need to move mysql databases from my hard drive which is currently in external box. I can't boot the drive since the laptop is down. Nothing of the distribution on the drive is missing. I just need to know which files/folders copy to my new computer to have all databases running. Old computer ran on Dreamlinux (Debian-based). I'm currently running Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu Servers :: Moving Var/www And MySQL Databases

Aug 12, 2010

Quick searches did not bring forth any standard solution.

I have installed Ubuntu Server 10 (x64) using LVM with two disks (this is a Virtual Machine on VMWare ESXi4)

During install I selected only disk 1, and LVM guided Installation Added LAMP and SSH

Server gives only a text mode configuration, great if you are a linux guru, but I am not so it took a bit to find a stripped down GUI. None could be found but I did the following:

apt-get install xorg gdm gnome-core (minimal Gnome install)
apt-get install gnome-system-tools (users and *****s, time)
apt-get install gnome-network-admin (network config)
apt-get install update-notifier (updates)


I have created a similar system with Ubuntu, now I wish to move the var/www directory to sda1, and the databases from MySQL.

Jun 18, 2010

I was having issues with MySQL Server and uninstalled it. I still have my databases at /lib/var/mysql.

My question: if I install MySQL Server (same version, 5.1) again, will it delete my databases, or will they still work?

Mar 9, 2010

I have a system with opensuse 11.0 and mysql

Do you know how to restore the view/access to databases?

Server :: Turns Out The Drive That Stores The Mysql Databases Has Gone Missing?

Aug 2, 2011

Rebooted my server after some funky stuff started happening with mysql. Turns out the drive that stores the mysql databases has gone missing. I did an fdisk, and the partition table is gone. I used gpart to see if there were any partitions available & there were -- two + one swap. Can you help me put this back together I know very little about reconstructing a table to use... Here is the output of what I've talked about...

Ubuntu :: CRON - Backing Up MySQL Databases?

Sep 18, 2010

Trying to set up a backup for mySQL databases in CRON.

I've entered the following line in /etc/crontab:

If I run the command outside of CRON, it creates the backups no problem, but CRON is not doing anything.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 - How To Sync MySQL Databases

Mar 8, 2011

I have a laptop and a desktop PC, both running Ubuntu 10.04 and both are configured the same way. I am using Unison-gtk to sync the data between both computers... This works for everything... except for my mysql databases. Any way to simply sync my mysql databases on both computers. Right now I need to do this table-per-table... and it is quite long to proceed like this. What I need is a script or a program (open and preferably free) that would just compare both databases (all the tables) and sync them either by updating existing tables or by creating them. This should work both ways... obviously. I could write a script for this, but I am sure there already is something for this out there.

Ubuntu Servers :: Restore MySQL Databases From Files?

Jun 8, 2010

How do I restore MySQL Databases from an old hdd with Ubuntu on it which won't boot? Information below is not necessary just explaining how I ended up in this situation. Today the harddrive crashed on one of my development servers and I have no recent backup of the MySQL databases on the server.

The stuff on the server weren't horrible important but it would still be nice if I were able to recover some of the files. This is the thing, I don't think the harddrive is entirely dead because it comes to a screen saying harddrive error something enter to continue then it says GRUB in the upper left corner before the computer crashes/reboots.

So I installed Ubuntu server on a new HDD and now I want to attempt to recover the databases from the old HDD by mounting it in Ubuntu but before trying I would like to know who one does that. As I've understood it's a bit more complicated then one might thing because MySQL uses binaries and not plain-files.

Programming :: MySQL Security - Remove The Ability To Make Test Databases?

Sep 29, 2010

I know very little about MySQL, but I've got some users that need it for testing on a Linux server.So I had set it up a while back, but now I'm running into some small problems.Right now, each user has his own database that I created and can do whatever with it. Each user only sees their own database.I didn't want them to be able to create new databases at all, but they can and when they do anyone can see them.

EDIT(Apparently they can only create databases beginning with the word "test" in the name)

I need to either:

1) Stop them from creating new databases (without affecting their ability to interact with the existing database)


2) Make it so that when they create a database, only they have privileges on it and only they can see it (except mysql root of course).

Anybody know the statement to set these kinds privileges up?

EDIT: pfft... I've a read a bit more and realize that this is an intended part of the installation.


I'd still like to remove the ability to make test databases.

EDIT3:Ok, for reference this is how you prevent users from making and using test databases:

shell> mysql -u root -p
Enter password: (enter root password here)
mysql> DELETE FROM mysql.db WHERE Db LIKE 'test%';

General :: Single Disk Space Quota Across Home Directories And Relational Databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL)?

Jun 10, 2011

Relational databases usually have their data over in /var/lib/something. Users are in /home (with data in /var/www). How can I apply a single total disk space quota across all of these independent software systems (file systems, RDBMS, etc.)?

P.S. There's a bet going on around me as to just how awesome SU is. Let's see what you've got.

Debian Configuration :: ProFTPd Configuration - Use To Host MySQL Databases And A Few Websites

Nov 18, 2010

I am having no luck configuring ProFTPd on a Debian Lenny production server we use to host our MySQL databases and a few websites. I had originally set it up so I could login and manage our internal sites, but I have the need to allow a few clients in to access their sites that we host. I am trying to root the users in their site directory, which would be "/sites/".

It just hit me while typing this. Is it possible to create a user without a shell to prevent login via SSH and set the home folder to /sites/whatever instead of /home/username? That would allow me to continue operating with my current configuration and root them in their site while preventing SSH logins.

Ubuntu :: Open Transferred Mysql Databases From An 8.04 Partition To A 10.04 Partition?

Sep 21, 2010

I transfered some mysql databases from an 8.04 partition to a 10.04 partition. They wouldn't open because the ownership & group was root:root since I transfered them as root. I looked at the original ownership of the files on 8.04 & found they were all "sane:124 ". I changed everything to mysql:mysql on the 10.04 partition & everything works O.K. now but I have no idea where that owner & group came from.

Two things I don't understand:

1 -Why I had to change ownership from root:root when I was logged in as root in mysql & the databases didn't show up?
2 - Where did the original "sane:124" ownership come from?

I'ev got Oracle running as well, and I can back these up from my linux boxes easily as there is a Linux ORacle client. I'd like to do the same with MS SQL, so I have one central location doing my database backups .

OpenSUSE Network :: ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't Connect To Local MySQL Server Through Socket '/var/mysql/mysql.sock

Jun 7, 2011

I think this goes here, but I'm not sure. I decided that XAMPP had been troublesome enough. MySQL never worked. So I decided to instal the LAMP stack offered by YaST. I went about installing it thinking that it would all work. But it seems that I was wrong. So I try to start mysql, and here's what I get:

the-matrix:~ # mysql start

General :: Validating Oracle Databases On Server

Mar 4, 2011

I just found that PMON and SMON are running (i.e., showing in the output of ps -ef | grep -i [o]ra)but when I check MMAN (used for internal database tasks), nothing comes up:

ps -ef | grep -i [m]man
Is that okay or could there be some problem?

So, what are the essential processes of an Oracle Databse that we must check for their status to make sure that the Oracle Databse is up and running fine? What steps do you usually take to validate an Oracle Databse on a Unix / Linux (Production) Server (specifically immediately after a CR has been worked upon)?

Click the 'Ping' button to see if there is a networking problem. I press the ping button, and it seems to connect.

Fedora :: MYSQL Error 2002 (HY000): Can't Connect To Local MySQL Server Through Socket?

Feb 22, 2011

I've been attempting to set up a LAMP for local web development, which meant installing mysql-server. But now have a problem when trying to run mysql, I get:-

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

When trying to downgrade mysql-server I saw that there are dependency problems between the various modules (but can't recall which). But whichever route I truied the results are always the same.

Thought about trying XAMPP but I note that even has it's problems, is there any way I can get a lamp set up on FC14, or must I give it up as a bad job.

Howver, just been trying to again to fix the problems with downgrading mysql and get:-

Error: Package: mysql-server-5.1.55-1.fc14.i686 (@updates)
Requires: mysql(x86-32) = 5.1.55-1.fc14
Removing: mysql-5.1.55-1.fc14.i686 (@updates)
mysql(x86-32) = 5.1.55-1.fc14

Server :: Recover MySQL Innodb From /var/lib/mysql/ Backup?

Jan 30, 2011

I installed mediawiki the other day and went with the default innodb option. However a week later something went wrong. And since I have scripts that nightly backup /var/ I just copied the backup of /var/lib/mysql/wikidb/ (as I've done with MyISAM). Then when I connect the wikidb database. I can see the tables (via "show tables"), but when I do any query with them (check table X, select * from X) I get:


Table 'wikidb.X' doesn't exist I've since read that can can't just copy the database directory like MyISAM, and there appears to be no way that I can find to restore or fix Innodb, without a dump of the data. And I never got a chance to do a mysqldump of the data. So has anybody got any idea how I can at least view the "page" table from the files I've backed up in /var/lib/mysql/wikidb/ ?
