    Hello,

    Seems the cPanel update has broken MySQL on my server. It won't start. I have opened a ticket with my host but they seem very slow these days. I'm hoping someone can give me direction in how to resolve this?

    If I go to the services page on cPanel, it says MySQL is down.

    I try restarting it but no luck. Any assistance would be appreciatd.

    Thanks

    Attached is the restart output log.

    I would first check the usual culprits
    1. ownership of the /var/lib/mysql folder make sure all is owned by mysql
    2. /etc/my.cnf
    3. tail your /var/lib/mysql/servername.err for more clues

    as you txt file only tells anyone reading it that it did not start (we all ready know that)

    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned in the previous post, the MySQL error log is the best place to start. Could you review /var/lib/mysql/$hostname.err and let us know the output when attempting to start MySQL.

    Thank you.
