Install the MySQL database engine, place them in the appropriate directory, start the server, and connect to it.

I placed them /usr/local/mysql/data/dbname/. and restart the server but still it is not working. Can you please explain it more. –  anubhav gupta Mar 28 '11 at 17:39
    
"The appropriate directory" is located next to all the existing databases. Try under /var/lib or the like. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Mar 28 '11 at 22:46
