backup of mysql from a crashed database

ok, so i made a dummy mistake, i updated mysql without backing it up, and guess what? it crashed and wont load.... i get an error for a mysql log file error. anyways, so i didnt backup the mysql database, and now it wont load, so i was wondering, hoping, there is a way to backup the database files with the server down, so that i can fix it and reload it all back up. all i have access to is a terminal. any help would be great, thanks. gt

edit: i also have sftp access... thanks

1) you should not just make a backup before upgrading

2) "i get an error for a mysql log file error." What error is that?

3) if you know how to "so that i can fix it and reload it ", why do you not know how to make a copy of this database?

4) BTW, did you make a backup.... ;)
