i was using wampserver 2.4 and i have databases in this server. But someone installed XAMP on my system. Now unable to connect to my databases after uninstalling XAMPP also. But i have my wamp folder as it. How can i retrive databases from C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.6.12\data Directory ?
That data is very important for me. What are the ways to retrive this data?
Wampserver is showing Offline.
I have tried it by editing listen port to 80 but failed.

Using Windows OS 7;
Error while opening my application : unable to connect to any of the mysql host.
wamp 2.4

Thanks in Advance.

> after uninstalling XAMPP also
Most of the time, uninstalling does not remove everything that was installed.
There may still be Xampp-related services or registry keys that have not been deleted.
It is also possible that Xampp has deleted or invalidated the services related to Wampserver.

Start Wampserver, even if the icon is not green.
- Left-Click -> Apache -> Service -> Remove service
- Left-Click -> Apache -> Service -> Install service
- Left-Click -> MySQL -> Service -> Remove service
- Left-Click -> MySQL -> Service -> Install service
- Left-Click -> Start all services

Nota : The only reliable and durable way to transfer or recover databases is to export/import them into SQL files.
