How screwed am I?

My server decided to take a shat. I've got the MySQLData directory, however, when I move the files into the new data directory, they're not being recognized.

Sounds like you may need a specialist to take a look honestly.

The files you have

Are they a) just copied files from when mysql was running?

or b) Recovered files from the knackered server?

Definitely what Slavik said... especially when dealing with InnoDB log files (which you most definitely need if you are dealing with InnoDB tables).
