MAMP / phpMyAdmin Not Picking Up Table Data

Hi guys,

I'm having major problems with my MAMP / phpMyAdmin setup and can't seem to find a solution for it.

A couple of weeks ago all of my sites on my local development environment which were connected to a database stopped working. Amongst a host of issues I've discovered is that although I can see all the databases and their corresponding tables in phpMyAdmin, the tables are all empty.

If I run any kind of SELECT * query from phpMyAdmin I get a 1146 error saying the table doesn't exist.

When I navigate to the root folder for all my databases (MAMP/db/mysqld56) I can see the folders for each database, and within each folder the .frm and .ibd files for all the tables.

Each of these files has a file size, so there is data in there somewhere.

How to I fix MAMP so that it is picking up the data from these files?

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions. Don
