I recently saved a backup of a WAMP installation i made for use with 
Cartoweb. The data i was using with Cartoweb was stored in a MySQL table 
using PHPMyAdmin. The folder structure looks something like this:
Wamp > Mysql > Data
and it contains several 10,000KB files called 'ib_logfile' and 'ibdata' as 
well as folders for each database. For example, the 'moor_simple' database 
folder contains:

I tried simply copying these folders to the mysql folder under my new 
Cartoweb install and the database names are now visible under PHPMyAdmin and 
clicking on them displays the various tables contained within them. Browsing 
the tables, however, is not possible and instead i get the message below 
(from within PHPMyAdmin):


SQL query:

SHOW INDEX FROM `moor_facility` ;

MySQL said:

#1146 - Table 'moor_simple.moor_facility' doesn't exist

Can someone please explain how i can restore my mysql data?

Many thanks,
