Restores the data files from a backup to their original locations within the database server. The MySQL instance must be shut down first before a restore operation. The options datadir, innodb_log_files_in_group, and innodb_log_file_size must be specified either in the target server's configuration file, in the file specified by the --defaults-file option, or as command-line options. For usage and examples, see Chapter 5, Recovering or Restoring a Database.
