To recover a database file from XAMPP server, you can follow these steps:

  1. Locate the 'xampp' folder on your computer. This is usually found in the root directory of your system or in the 'Program Files' folder if you installed XAMPP using an installer.
  2. Inside the 'xampp' folder, locate the 'mysql' folder. This folder contains all the database files used by the XAMPP server.
  3. Look for the folder with the same name as your database. This folder contains all the tables and data of your database.
  4. If you have backup files of your database, you can restore them by copying the files into the database folder mentioned in the previous step.
  5. If you don't have backup files, you can try using a data recovery tool to recover the lost database file. There are several free and paid data recovery tools available online that can help you recover lost or deleted files.
  6. Once you have successfully recovered the database file, you can import it back into the XAMPP server using phpMyAdmin or any other database management tool.

Note: It is recommended to regularly backup your database files to avoid data loss in the future.
