I created a new database in mysql. After a few days i logged into mySQL and discovered that my database is gone. All that is left is an empty database calle 'test' (not even created by me).

I created a new database again and again the same thing happened after a few days of not accessing MySQL.

Can anyone help me?

Someone may be accessing your server and deleting your databases. Are you hosting a live website with WAMP? Be careful, if someone can access and delete your database, they can also copy any info in your database, or they can even change info in your database. For example they could give themselves admin level access to your script and cause all kinds of havoc.

Make sure you follow the tutorial in the second post on this page:
