I have a client whose nictool crashed and they did not have a backup of thier NicTool DB. They managed to recover the data.orig file that the data.cdb is generated from, Does anyone know a fast way to import that directly into NiCtool ?

Thanks !



Yikes. I know of no such import tool, and in the future, I recommend installing my mysql_replicate_manager.  Have it run with -b on a periodic basis (daily, weekly, whatever) to back up all your MySQL databases:

[matt@cadillac] ~ % sudo mysql_replicate_manager.pl -b
loading private modules...done.
loading public modules...done.
