View Full Version : [ubuntu] mysql died overnight on my Ubuntu 8.04 server

January 14th, 2011, 07:18 PM
After X days of blissful uptime my mysql failed on my server for some reason. I have had 0 problems with it for over a year and it simply died overnight. I have been upgrading old packages occasionally so it is possible that could have effected it. Anyway, after reading around tons about how /var/run/mysqld/mysql.sock doesn't exist and solutions to fix it I finally ended up attempting to reinstall mysql (I take regular database backups so I wan't concerned about losing data). The typescript from this endeavor is here: https://gist.github.com/779972. Hopefully someone knows what the heck is going on?


EDIT: after pulling my hair out trying to get this to work for 5 days I decided to install simply wipe out ubuntu entirely and install 10.4 and try again. this worked, but its a horrible solution.

Is your disk full?

Is your disk full?

I thought of that, I included a df in the gist already:

root@scheibo# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1 12G 4.1G 6.7G 38% /
udev 261M 124K 261M 1% /dev
none 261M 0 261M 0% /dev/shm
none 261M 28K 261M 1% /var/run
none 261M 0 261M 0% /var/lock

Doesn't seem to be full from what I can tell
