    Hopefully you haven't done anything drastic yet...

    The MySQL database is made up of MyISAM tables.

    And, you *should* be able to copy that folder [paragon-cs.com] from another install and then restart MySQL. (correct version [mysql.com], of course)

    However, you will most likely need to start MySQL with --skip-grant-tables.

    That should get you running well enough to dump everything safely and reinstall.

    HTH
    • Thank you. Unfortunately, I've already done something drastic, and it was not the right thing. :(

      Expensive lesson learned. :)
