Can't restart mysql?

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm having trouble restarting mysql. When I enter the following command, I get this message: # /etc/init.d/mysql restart Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service mysql restart Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the restart(8) utility, e.g. restart mysql And it hangs forever. When I try to restart mysql as a service using the following command: # service mysql restart It hangs forever. I can't log into mysql as root anymore either. Any ideas on how to get this runn (HowTos)
