Thanks for your response! I have 2 instances running on 2 ports. I have the backups also. Can I restore after installation. Will all the additional users be restored? – Shilpa Dec 12 '10 at 15:02
MySQL's authdb is stored in the database itself, so they should be. As always, test on a development server first. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 12 '10 at 15:04
