Hello,

Sudenly after a server reboot mysql can't start. I've tried every single post in this forums without success.

Tried to rebuild:

$:# cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild; ./build mysql d
Dumping database mysql

It is recommended to do "./build php n" after MySQL update.

Please ignore my post, I've found it:

Looks like the apt-get fiasco caused MySQL to look for /etc/mysql/my.cnf instead of /etc/my.cnf
Just did a symlink back to the correct cnf file and now everything is back up.
