My root access linux server has crashed and I cannot SSH into it or interact with it. I can, however tell the online console to do a network boot to a "rescue system" which allows me to access the files on the server.
This means I can only get the raw folder of my database and I can't perform an SQL dump.
It doesn't work if I just copy the folder of my database, because on my new working server it says some tables are not available. Apparently it is because of InnoDB and that I should copy the ibdata1, ib_logfile0 and ib_logifle1 files as well.
Can I just overwrite the ib* files on my news server with the ib* files of the old server? Is there any way I can transfer this database just by copying files?
