Recover damaged MySQL database
eRepair MySQL (download) is an efficient, compact, and easy-to-use tool that can recover the data from your damaged MySQL database without the hassle of hiring a third party IT professional. MyISAM database is a supported format, and the resulting restored database can be saved directly to the MySQL server or as a script to your hard drive.
The program’s interface is a multi-step wizard that presents clear instructions on how to recover your data in just a few clicks of the mouse. The instructions are easy to follow and understand, and the program can help a person with limited computer experience recover any size MySQL database easily and safely.
The steps to recovering your database are relatively simple and consist of just a few steps. First, you choose the database you want to restore. Next, you will see the structure of the database as the program analyzes it. Then, you can choose where the new file will be saved. As stated above, you can save it as a script to your hard drive or to an external hard drive, or you can export the database directly into MySQL server. If you choose the latter, you will have to specify the host name (default is localhost), and enter your username and password in order to configure the server connection settings. Once all that’s done, you can click Recover and the recovery process will commence. In order to actually recover your files, you will need the full version of the program. You can view the recovered data with the DEMO version, but that’s as far as the DEMO version will take you. It cannot restore items.
On the off chance that eRepair MySQL is unable to restore your data – if the MySQL database is too corrupted or there is something else damaged, the creators of the program not only want to know about it, they want to fix it. You can send any MySQL database the program cannot recover directly to the developers and they will scan it more deeply. To send it to them, use the Send a source file option on the main menu. Once the developers receive the corrupted database, they will try to manually recover it. They will contact you to give you their findings, and they will use what they learned from your data to make eRepair MySQL even better than before.
eRepair MySQL is a simple way to recover a MySQL database. Anyone can use it. Losing database information can be devastating, so make sure you get this software to prevent the damage that can happen to your website, business, or both when you lose precious data.
