mysql don't start after update

hi. i have virtualmin in centos5. today i have update packages which apear in front page … was mysql server, webmin, etc and updated but now the mysql don’t start. and the reckeck configuration tell me mysql is not installed or running.
what to do.?


If you log into your server as root over SSH, what happens if you try to manually start MySQL with this command:

/etc/init.d/mysqld start

Does it startup? If not, do you see any error messages?


It is possible that just the location of the MySQL PID file changed, so Webmin thinks MySQL is not running, when in fact it is still fine. :slight_smile: Trying what Eric suggested should clarify that.
