Today, mysql wont startup and dont know why (or maybe!)
First of all I looked at “/var/lib/mysql/<\your host name>.err” log and this was the error:
Fatal error: Can’t open privilege tables: Can’t find file: ‘host.MYI’ (errno: 2)
The problem is the file was there (/var/lib/mysql/mysql).
The solution is delete /var/lib/mysql/mysql wit command rm -fR,
type rcmysql start and the folder will be recreated.
You’ll lost all users but mysql will be up and running! Now you have to reset the root password: mysqladmin -u root password
hope to have been useful again!
I forgot… the error was my fault … I played too much with phpmyadmin.
Machines do always what we want they do!
