Comments - Schema missing after upgrading from MySQL 5.5.8 to MariaDB 5.5.31

You're working with the brand-new database now, uninstalling MySQL prior to installing MariaDB was not a good idea.

Now you have to find your data directory (perhaps C:\Program Data\MySQL\5.5\data or something), and the content over to MariaB data directory which is in C:\Program Files\MariaDB\5.5\data.

Got it, thanks. I was just following advice from the creator of mysql himself, I guess his instructions don't apply to windows.

Right, he never works on Windows ;)
