Permissions is an OS problem. The files need to be owned by "mysql". Were you 'root' when copying the files? Did you preserve the ownership and permissions during the copy? What OS are you using?

  • I am using windows, I am root and I didn't copy the files. It got deleted/missing after my laptop recorvered from a crash.
