mysql is not runing on debian system! please help

hello
suddenly mysql stop working.
i am using debian squezze distro and virtualmin latest version.

virtualmin doesn’t recognise it and i can’t see any log for mysql
MySQL has been enabled, but cannot be used by Virtualmin. Use the MySQL Database module to fix the problem.
when i click to enable the mysql
i receive the following error
MySQL is not running on your system - database list could not be retrieved.
i try to reinstall mysql from shell but no luck…
please instruct… also i can’t see any error log files… all are empty…

Howdy,

What is the output of these commands:

dpkg -l 'mysql*' ps auxw | grep mysql
