innoDB tables corrupt, mySQL failing to restart


Mar 13, 2007
Good Afternoon,

I have tried to contact support to fix the issue I am having, but they have suggested to get a DBA to fix the issues I'm having. While, in a perfect world I would be more than willing to do this, I don't have access to the cash in order to do it. While DB's are something familiar to myself and I'm pretty good at managing them, I'm at a loss as to where to start. The information below is what I can gather, as well as what cPanel support has helped me with.

I have tried to follow the below post, but sadly, mySQL will not restart.

This issue was caused suddenly and without any kind of warning as far as I can tell. There wasn't any recent additions from what I can tell. I'm completely at a loss as to why this happened... What could possibly be the fix for this?
