mysql could not start!

Postby hanpedro » 24. August 2009 05:38

My box is centos 5.3 x86 and installed xampp for linux 1.7.2.

After changing my.cnf, mysql could not start!

my.cnf I used at xampp 1.6.8 is here;

Code: Select all
# The following options will be passed to all MySQL clients
#password   = your_password
port      = 3306
socket      = /opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock

# The MySQL server
port      = 3306
socket      = /opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock
key_buffer = 16M
max_allowed_packet = 1M
table_cache = 64
sort_buffer_size = 512K
net_buffer_length = 8K
read_buffer_size = 256K
read_rnd_buffer_size = 512K
myisam_sort_buffer_size = 8M

server-id   = 1

# Comment the following if you are using InnoDB tables
# skip-innodb
innodb_data_home_dir = /opt/lampp/var/mysql/
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
innodb_log_group_home_dir = /opt/lampp/var/mysql/
innodb_log_arch_dir = /opt/lampp/var/mysql/
# You can set .._buffer_pool_size up to 50 - 80 %
# of RAM but beware of setting memory usage too high
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 16M
innodb_additional_mem_pool_size = 2M
# Set .._log_file_size to 25 % of buffer pool size
innodb_log_file_size = 5M
innodb_log_buffer_size = 8M
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 1
innodb_lock_wait_timeout = 50

max_allowed_packet = 16M

# Remove the next comment character if you are not familiar with SQL

key_buffer = 20M
sort_buffer_size = 20M
read_buffer = 2M
write_buffer = 2M

key_buffer = 20M
sort_buffer_size = 20M
read_buffer = 2M
write_buffer = 2M


And error log is here;

Code: Select all

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose
the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong
and this may fail.

It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 264707 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

thd: 0x944c378
Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...
stack_bottom = 0xaefb836c thread_stack 0x30000
Trying to get some variables.
Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...
thd->query at (nil) is an invalid pointer
The manual page at contains
information that should help you find out what is causing the crash.
090824 13:02:21 mysqld_safe mysqld from pid file /opt/lampp/var/mysql/ ended

Please let me know how I can fix this.
Many thanks in advance.

Remove "innodb_log_arch_dir" from your "my.cnf".
