    because thats all i did and now im getting the error that all .frm files contain the incorrect information, and it looks like the only way to solve it is to dump the db and start again, only other thing i did was put mysql into its no default dir, could that do it also ?

    I dont think mysql contains any hard coded dirs so you should be able to place it where you like
