I am running OS X with mySQL 8.0.22 running natively. A few weeks ago had to reinstall mySQL as I could not get it to start. I made a backup of all the folders under '/usr/local/mysql/data'.
When mySQL was installed again it had wiped all the databases.
The data inside these DB is in no way critical, but I remembered today I was working in a WordPress site with a page builder, hence all info is stored in the DB tables.
I would like to find a way to restore this database, but every article I have read mentions "ibd and frm" files.
There is not a single frm file from the backup I made.
Is there any way of recreating this DB at all or is it a lost cause?
