I am having a problem restoring a backup of the mysql data directory from an LVM copy. I am only having a problem with InnoDB tables, more specifically that it will not load InnoDB when I start mysqld.
I have tested on a clean install and InnoDB loads just fine with no changes needed for my.ini
Here is an example of the error in the log:
101223 14:57:50 [Note] Plugin ‘FEDERATED’ is disabled.
InnoDB: Error: log file .\ib_logfile0 is of different size 0 268435456 bytes
InnoDB: than specified in the .cnf file 0 5242880 bytes!

101223 14:57:51 [Warning] Neither --relay-log nor --relay-log-index were used; so replication may break when this MySQL server acts as a slave and has his hostname changed!! Please use ‘–relay-log=Jenn-relay-bin’ to avoid this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
