    i was in ispconfig deleting data bases and checking in phpmyadmin to make sure they were deleted. the second data base i deleted was bid when i refreshed phpmyadmin all of the data bases were gone i when i singed into putty it said that the system needed to reboot so i rebooted it. no on boot i am getting this error
    Code:
    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
    i can do nothing from this screen i have no putty access and no websites running.

    what should i do? i know or think this is a grub problem ant ideas how i can fix this

    after doing some reading on this it seems that the problem is in the boot area like it is full. being that i can not access the box by ether putty of directly hooked up to the box can i use the ubuntu 10.4 disk to boot into the system and clean out the boot area? and if so what should i be looking to remove



    thanks

    ok i have found out that if i hold the shift key when i reboot the i could get into the kernal boot i selected the one below the latest and then the box booted up and i have access to the server once again. how can i clean out the older grubs as my boot is 98%full and i think this may be part of the problem

    You can delete old kernels that you don't use anymore.

    yes i understand that but how can i do one at a time

    i know that i can run
    Code:
    dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge
    it will remove all but the current kernel but how can i just delete one at a time instead of doing them all?

    i want to keep one or 2 backups rite now i am running on 2.6.32-37-server but i think that 2.6.32-38-server is the latest when i select that one i am getting the error from above thanks
