What is an FRM file?

A FRM file contains the formatting information or structure data for a table in a MySQL database. It specifies the table stored in the database and defines the fields and structure of the table. FRM files are generated when a MySQL table is created and they bear the same name as the tables for which they store the formatting information.

More Information

You will most likely only encounter MySQL FRM files if you are a database architect or developer configuring the MySQL data storage backend of an application. The files are created in the same directory that represents the database to which the tables they are storing formatting information for belong.

FRM files are not meant to be manually opened. Instead, they are referenced by MySQL to format each table in a database.

FRM files are saved along with an .MYD file, which contains the actual data stored in the database. Both files are necessary for MySQL to recognize the database. If the MySQL database uses MyISAM tables, an .MYI file is also used and required.

There are some instances when data in a MySQL database is lost or becomes corrupt. Utilities like Aryson MySQL Database Repair may be used to recover or repair the FRM files that store the lost formatting information.

NOTE: FRM is short for "FoRMat."
