    Those are not files from which you can “restore”. The proper way to backup is to use “mysqldump” from the command line, export from phpmyadmin, or use a plugin that backs up the database.

    It *may* be that you can recover if you shut down MySQL, move the current set of files in /var/lib/mysql to someplace safe, copy those files in their place, and start mysqld. Good luck.
