My core power supply was having problems last night which meant that the core was instantly losing power and would need to be manually restarted. This happened a few times before I realised what was happening. I have now replaced the power supply and seems to be stable from that perspective - but it looks to have corrupted the databases.
mysqld will not start and when attempts are made to start it manually it fails after attempting to recover, blurts out a stack trace and advises to look at a couple of websites for more info. The websites just take me through attaching symbols to the stack trace etc which don't really help me at the moment.
Question is; can I somehow reinstall mysql without upsetting the rest of the system and having to do a reinstall? Anyone done anything like this?
