Hello all,

As I was in the process of preparing to move our wiki, the server up and
bought the farm. Good news  is I had a backup of the database directory
(wikidb).....question is I need to restore that directory to a new
server. This simply a copy of the original database directory, and it is
not a database "dump'. 

Is there a way for me to resurrect the wiki from this? All the Mediawiki
pages seem to cover is "moving" a wiki, not recovering one. I also have
a complete copy of the wiki file folder (localsettings.php, images
directory, all other directories).

Thanks all,
