Made a mistake during upgrade - How can I get my data back?

Postby Ninja_2k » 11. June 2016 12:24

I made a mistake in my latest upgrade to Xampp, I copied my old Xampp directory to C:/Xampp - Copy but I forgot to export out the mysql tables. I then uninstalled xampp and installed the new version.

I tried to access the phpmyadmin from the Xampp - Copy but I cannot get access to it to dump its tables, is there anyway I can gain access to my old tables?

If you have the old xampp folder in its entirety, you can use that copy still. Remove the new install, restore the location as c:\xampp, and do a backup the right way.

Yes this worked, my panic was that my CMS was coming up with a DB error but that was my CMS that was broken, seems to be working now.
