MySQL was not starting. I backed up /var/lib/mysql/*. I uninstalled MySQL and reintalled it. It started again. I copied everything back to /var/lib/mysql. I restarted the service. I logged in and could see all of my tables. When I try to view their contents, I get:
Table 'tablename' doesn't exist
Is there something I need to do to make MySQL recognize the files I copied back into the /var/lib/mysql/ folder?
Any help is appreciated, I'm dying here.
