I don't know why, all of a sudden I cannot open anymore MySQL. I get the following error:
bomble@ChemAlive:~/ChemAliveCode/SABIC$ mysql -h localhost -u bomble
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
I tried to restart MySQL doing:
bomble@ChemAlive:~/ChemAliveCode/SABIC$ sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart [sudo] password for bomble:
But it failed:
* Stopping MySQL database server mysqld [ OK ]
* Starting MySQL database server mysqld [fail]
I had a look at my error.log file. Here's what it says:
InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1, error: 11 InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process InnoDB: using the same InnoDB data or log files.
Don't know what that means?
