Hi Had to reboot my server as the mysql service just randomly stopped working. I was then greeted with a disk failure is imminent message which i've managed to recover from but the mysql service still doesnt come up. So far I've tried a yum update mysqld and that updated some of the modules but the service still doesnt come up. When I enter service mysqld start I just get a failed message and no more information. I need to access the mysql databases to back everything up before the HDD dies. Any ideas on what the problem is? Would a yum remove mysqld and then reinstall work or would I loose all my databases?
