So we're running into a somewhat perplexing issue on one of the servers at school right now. There have been a couple of power outages that brought the system down abruptly, and the servers are not very happy about it, particularly mysql. In order to get it to respond at all, we have to reinstall the mysql server. Meanwhile, I no longer know what version of mysql the existing databases were created with, and they can't be read by another version. Is there a way to determine the creating version for a mysql table that anyone knows of?
