Can't drop my database

Can't drop my database

Can't drop my database

We had a crash because during a replication the network broke away. Now all MySQL tables are displayed in NAVICAT. However, if I want to access it, I'm told "table does not exist". This affects all DBs present on the host and all tables in them. Actually, I do not need the tables any more, because I want to copy them from the backup. They can all be deleted. But if I want to delete it, comes the message that they do not exist. If I want to create a new table with an existing name, the message "Table already exists" appears. The databases can not be deleted (Error 41). New databases can be created.

What do you think if I delete in the directory data the subdirectory praxis1 (that is the concerning DB)? Maybe then I can create the DB praxis1 again?

Greeting Norbert
