Updated mysql to 5.5.35 and cannot start it now???

Updated mysql to 5.5.35 and cannot start it now???

Updated mysql to 5.5.35 and cannot start it now???

The other day I used apt-get to apply some updates to my ubuntu 13.10 server. Among them to the above stated level of MySQL. However, after I rebooted I can no longer start the mysqld program. The error complains of an innoDB checksum error. The interesting thing is that I don't have any DB's with the innoDB engine. Mine are all mysqlisam.

I've been searching for a way to get this program started to no avail. Hopefully some of you guru's can point me to the correct direction. Fortunately I do have a mysqldump of all databases/tables from shortly before.

Do I completely clear out the /var/lib/mysql directories, and attempt to recreate and load the databases? I don't want to jump to conclusions so that's why I'm asking for some suggestions from those who might have experienced this error.

Thanks anyong . . . ponder

RE: Updated mysql to 5.5.35 and cannot start it now???

Feel like upgrading again <grin>.

On website: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/new... (upgrading to 5.5.5)
I found the following as a bug fix:
InnoDB: Fixed a checksum error reported for compressed tables when the --innodb_checksums option is enabled. Although the message stated that the table was corrupted, the table is actually fine. (Bug #53248)

RE: Updated mysql to 5.5.35 and cannot start it now???

Well I thought I would update my request.
Ultimately I had to completly remove and reinstall mysql which deleted the tables. The I had to recreate the databases and reload from my backup. Took a while but its done. A PIA but at least its working.

RE: Updated mysql to 5.5.35 and cannot start it now???

Glad you got it fixed -- sadly I am also painfully aware of the PIA aspect of something that should be so simple.
Also, than you for updating the status! Too often I find forum entries describing the exact problem I am having, see a few suggestions, then never any word on if it was fixed :(
