Database was not shut down normally!

I give up. I’ve looked everywhere.

How come I get this

Everytime I restart. The database seems to be doing fine but if looks like it’s unstable. How can I fix it?

By restart, you mean restart your physical machine? Try forcing a shutdown on mysqld before continuing with a system restart and see what happens.

mysqladmin shutdown

I’m sorry I didn’t know someone replied here. No email.

This worries the dog poop out of me because today I think it crashed. Lucky for me I have back-ups all over my computer, but all the back ups have the same error.

What I mean is if I do a restart I get this error. I have done everything I now to fix it. My site seems to be working fine right now but I’m gun shy after today! :slight_smile:

I can’t find any information on the web except something about delete the InnoDB and some files and restarting it. But they never said how to delete the InnoDB.

Any advice is welcome.
