I recently formatted my PC which had MySQL running on it. As a result, I lost the databases on my hard drive.
I tried to restore the databases by re-installing the MySQL Server and putting the databases back into the MySQL datafiles folder. When I started the MySQL service, I got error 1067:
Windows could not start the MySQL Service on local computer.
If I just install MySQL and do not put my databases into the datafiles folder, I don't get the error.
How can I successfully restore my databases?
I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise.
