    Help: I disabled MySQL on our server and it won't come back

    Well, not I think I did...I know I did. We are building a new site and I just finished building tables and a database on the server.

    I was not able to access it with any of the user names and passwords I set up, even the ones will full permissions.

    I thought that it may help to stop MySql and start it again. (There are buttons to do both). But when I pressed the button to stop MYSQL, the Start MYSQL button does not work.

    I get this message:

    MySQL is not running on your system - database list could not be retrieved.

    Click this button to start the MySQL database server on your system with the command /usr/local/bin/safe_mysqld &. This Webmin module cannot administer the database until it is started

    and when I click on it to start, nothing happens.

    Did I really 'jack' something up? Did I dump my entire mysql configuration?? how much work does it take to "start" it again? is it a simple command line or did i just destroy the whole thing?

    Which operating system is it running on? What application did you use to start and stop MySQL?

    I think its a Unix server. it has a webmin user interface that you get to by typing in the ip address plus :10000

    Do you have shell access to the system (IE, telnet/ssh(2))

    // EDIT //

    From re-reading, I doubt your MySQL is broken, id be more likely to say webmin is being stupid

    I suppose I cannot run that command since I do not have direct access to the servers. I think I may have to contact the people who have the servers. they are in another state.
