I have never worked with MySql.
I have some old/crude software running on my machine. It holds a lot of data that I would like access to since the UI is garbage. After searching around the file directories I found what appears to be a MySql database.
Inside of this directory is a my.ini file along with several others. Also several folders including data.
C:\Users\Me\AppData\Roaming\Program Name\mdb\bin\data are ib_logfile0, ibdata1, and other folders/files including frm.
In Sql Server I'd attach it to SSMS, but I can't seem to do that here. I tried copying all the files to the local MySQL
ProgramData folder then opening MySQL workbench. But I never see any tables in the Schema section.
My question is: Is there a way for me to access these tables? I have installed MySql and attempted to connect to this database with no luck. Is there a way to access usernames or can I just use a root account?
Thanks in advance.
