I'm doing a mysql restore to a new server that has a mysql database on
it. As in just installed mysql.
show databases shows two databases "mysql" and "information_schema".
My backups from a previous server has many db's including two called
mysql and information_schema.
Do I have to drop the new server's mysql and information_schema
databases and reload my own or are these not used or needed by mysql or
what are they for?
Any clues appreciated.
