that is cryptic.

Basically he's setting up a backup copy or something. since yours is
from scratch you could also just backup your mythconverg from your
mysql data directory then copy it back there in the new install. You
may have to create the db like it was new and then overwrite it with
your "old"/real version. I've done this type of moving about when
testing whether to leave my db on my recordings RAID10 array or on my
system drive (I have it on my RAID10 array if you want to know...).
