Lost MySQL database, warning
« on: September 15, 2007, 05:24:04 pm »
I have noticed that the media keeps playing and LMCE keeps responding up to the moment the Media Directors actually shuts down.
I don't know if this is the cause of my trouble, but I did answer a question about a found "fileserver" at the moment the Core shut down. (I know this is not a smart thing to do, but I wanted to test)
I am speculating that this may have corrupted the MySQL database as LMCE never did reboot after this, just came a message that it couldn't connect to MySQL.

Any answers, tips, similar experiences?

check if there is a lock file for mysql
then check if it is running
Code: [Select]
ps ax|grep mysqlif it is not running, delete the lockfile and issue the command in init.d or rc.d
Code: [Select]
./mysql start

This setup works like a charm! Maybe just a little more ram ;-)
