    I got a call from a user friend that has a wordpress blog on my server, the site is down, I can't get at it from any external port. It's miles away in a colo so I can SSH into it and "shutdown -t now" and it did go down. But never came back up, it errors out now with an error 15 file now found during grub post.

    I can get at the drive with a liveCD, but what would I move to be able to get just the Databases from 2 sites?

    Any help would be most appreciated, and I'll definitely donate if there is any help that can get me out of this mess.

    The goal is to simply get the databases from 2 sites, I have all the files and images etc. I just desperately need a way to get the mysql databases back. Then I can nuke it and start fresh.

    Appreciative in advance,
