Your tables will be in InnoDB, with the table
just holding pointers to ibdata1 file. searchindex
table is in MyIsam and thus the content is really on
To be honstest I don't understand completely what you ay,
since I don't know exactly what InnoDB is although I have
heard the word.
I just found a mysql dump file from another wiki.
I could succesfully use that dump and later conncect
wikimedia to that db. There is however a difference this db
has more .MYD and MYI files for example
Does this mean that the database from the crashed hard disk
is may be corrupt, since it has only 1 MYD and 1 MYI
Is there any way to extract the ASCII text (anything more
sophisticated than "strings") from
searchindex.MYD and searchindey.MYI

sorry my ignorance
mysql -p wikidb

Well it does not return anything also mediawiki connects
correctly to that database.
I am puzzled
The "show tables;" command within MySQL has to have the semicolon at
the end, or it doesn't work.
What are you seeing in the logs that convinces you the connection from
MediaWiki is working properly?
