I used to have a Linux system (LMDE) with MySQL. The system used innodb_file_per_table for most of the databases. (not sure about the version, whatever is the "latest" in LMDE)
I am now on a new system (Manjaro/Arch) with MariaDB.
$ mysql --version mysql Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.0.15-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1
The old system had plenty of big databases, that I would really prefer not having to copy with mysqldump. I would much prefer to copy the /var/lib/mysql folder from the old system.
Is this possible?
