I have 2 problems:
On my old PC Win 7 pro 64 machine, I had XAMPP v 1.7.7 installation with approx 200 databases. PC crashed so I was unable to do proper DB export
Now I have new Win 8.1 pro 64 machine and I'm trying to restore my webs from old disk into new 1.8.2 Xampp installation
Is it possible to import old mysql data into new XAMPP installation?
Folder stricture is the same, and I still have access to all xampp files on old disk
At 1st - I tried to just copy data folders from mysql folder into new one, but webs doesn't work because I didn't copied mysql files from data folder root, just data website named folders.
Than I copied (synced with total commander) all files from old data folder root, and now websites work,
but because it over-writed files in new data root folder Im guessing that some some tables from new xampp version might be lost.
So I tried to do xampp reinstall but it doesn't wont to proceed, it says Xampp directory is not empty.
What would be the best way to transfer just my websites mysql data into new xampp environment?
