How to import data web & DB from old backed up install?
Hi! Could you help me to import data & DB from an old backup install?
Story: Something went wrong, my DB broked down with incomplete import of huge file and I couldn't clean it up or run it. I've renamed the "laragon" dir to "laragon_old" dir, installed it once again. Started working on a project and now I'd like to go back to old ones, but simply moving data & DB to respective folders doesn't help. How I could do it?
Thanks a lot!
@vyskoczilova : You should copy proper files and folders. Hope this article help:
Hi thanks a lot, but somehow it doesn't work... I've downloaded a portable Laragon. Copied over all DB files. The DB's are created but no data within tables it throws "unknown table engine". But I have no clue if they were broken before or not imported correctly right now. Do you have any advice?
@vyskoczilova : Please be noticed that the portable comes with MySQL 5.1 which is very old.
Hi leokhoa, oh, good point. Upgraded DB, all tables got imported, however, except the first one all of them are empty with no content at all. I thought that having saved database & www files on an external drive would be enough, but apparently not
Anway, leokhoa, thanks for your help and thumbs up!
