comment Mysql Fail to start
My database doesn't seem to be usable yet - but at least I think I know the issue. I'm going to re-install mysql and see if the problem is fixed.

comment Mysql Fail to start
It seems my database was corrupt and prevented mysql from starting. Per the manual, I added this to /etc/mysql/my.cnf: [mysqld] innodb_force_recovery = 6. When I restarted the server, it started without crashing.

Didn't work. "sudo service mysql restart" -- "stop: Unknown instance: start: Job failed to start". /var/run/mysqld has "rwxrwxrwt 1 mysql mysql 0 Jul 23 22:01 mysqld.sock"
