Good day!

I need help here. I have install mysql on c drive at server, everythings works fine. but we have stop monitoring it last month cause the website that we want to launch was postponed.

recently we need to do sometesting again and ony realise the database was gone, so we login the server and notice some one has move our mysql directory from c to d drive! the service failed to started. I was very angry that time. i try to point the service to d drive but it failed to start also, and there is no database, so i copy the mysql folder to c drive, after copy, it successfully detach the database and all the table remain there. this is the lucky part.

then again i start the command prompt and stitch back the "my.ini" file back to previous part :


then i try to start the service again. before that i check with the service setting and yes it all back to c drive. but now it failed to start!
with this error message :

cound not start the mysql service on local computer
error 1058: the service cannot be started, either because it is disable or because it has no enabled devices assiciated with it.

what should I do now ?
