This question already has an answer here:

I'm currently experiencing issues with my server MySQL databases as I keep receiving the following error:

InnoDB: The log sequence in ibdata files is higher
InnoDB: than the log sequence number in the ib_logfiles! Are database?
InnoDB: you are using the right ib_logfiles to start up the database?
InnoDB: Log sequence number in ib_logfiles in 6316712, log
InnoDB: sequence numbers stamped to ibdata file headers are between
InnoDB: 24916633497 and 24916633497

Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks, in advance!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Did something happen to the ib_logfiles? Did you move/restore them? – dwjv Nov 10 '15 at 12:47
  • When I first began having the issues I did not touch the files at all, but I tried restructuring the server therefore backing up, deleting then restoring the files and since then the same issue is occurring. – Richard Nov 10 '15 at 21:43
  • @Richard what mysql version are you running? – naschoff Nov 10 '15 at 22:32
  • I'm running version 5.5.46 – Richard Nov 12 '15 at 10:01
  1. Stop MySQL server;
  2. Check the error log see verify if your shutdown was successful. (No errors)
  3. Move your log files: mv /path/to/datadir/ib_logfile* /tmp/
  4. Start MySQL server. This will create new logs;
  5. When you’re absolutely sure that MySQL server has started successfully, you can remove the old log files: rm /tmp/ib_logfile*

    1. Possible roll back would be to repeat the steps again in this sequence: 1, reverse 3, 4.
