http://serverfault.com – Today I have changed mysql config file and restarted mysql with: service mysql restart And saw the following: Stopping mysql database server: mysqld. Starting mysql database server: mysqld. Checking for corrupt, not cleanly closed and upgrade needing tables.. After that the mysql service started working, but later I saw errors on my website and realized that InnoDB engine was not started. In /var/log/daemon.log I saw the following lines: InnoDB: Error: log file ./ib_logfile0 is of different size 0 5242880 bytes InnoDB: than specified in the .cnf file 0 67108864 bytes! [ERR (HowTos)
