Hello everybody, I have a big problem on a production server (ISPConfig 188.8.131.52, Debian Squeeze 64-bit, Perfect Setup)
I noticed that I can't create new mysql databases via ISPConfig interface. A line with a new database actually appears, but no new database is actually created - and there's nothing new in /var/lib/mysql
I tried to log in as mysql root user via shell - and there was another nasty surprise - it said access denied (wrong credentials)!
So something - or someone - changed my root mysql password.
I still CAN login as other regular mysql users.
I tried to reset the root user password by using this howto:
but this line
doesn't start mysql, it just hangs...
So - was the server hacked, or something just went wrong?
Is there a way to somehow revive the server?
I'd welcome any advice!
Dear Till, thank you, but this is what is happening:
root@server2:~# /etc/init.d/mysql stop
Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld.
root@server2:~# mysqld_safe –skip-grant-tables &
root@server2:~# 130214 19:07:47 mysqld_safe Logging to syslog.
130214 19:07:47 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
130214 19:07:52 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid ended
- and no prompt appears (I waited a long time)
If I try to input the next command from another shell window, I get:
root@server2:~# mysql -u root mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
