I have just restarted my dev machine, and now MySQL refuses to start up. When I start the service, it instantly throws an exception and dies...
I can't think of anything I could've changed before restarting that could've affected MySQL in any way...
This is MySQL Server 5.1 running on Windows 2003 Server.
This is what the log file says:
090703 14:11:17 - mysqld got exception 0xc0000005 ; 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. key_buffer_size=26214400 read_buffer_size=65536 max_used_connections=0 max_threads=100 threads_connected=0 It is possible that mysqld could use up to key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 58231 K bytes of memory Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation. thd: 0x0 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... 006B8853 mysqld.exe!srv_parse_data_file_paths_and_sizes()[srv0start.c:211] 006A7E18 mysqld.exe!innobase_init()[ha_innodb.cc:1536] 00442748 mysqld.exe!ha_initialize_handlerton()[handler.cc:434] 00561253 mysqld.exe!plugin_initialize()[sql_plugin.cc:1002] 00565AE5 mysqld.exe!plugin_init()[sql_plugin.cc:1209] 004CE1B4 mysqld.exe!init_server_components()[mysqld.cc:3831] 004CE8C6 mysqld.exe!win_main()[mysqld.cc:4267] 004CECDB mysqld.exe!mysql_service()[mysqld.cc:4439] 00724593 mysqld.exe!_callthreadstart()[thread.c:293] 0072462C mysqld.exe!_threadstart()[thread.c:275] 77E6482F kernel32.dll!GetModuleHandleA() The manual page at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/crashing.html contains information that should help you find out what is causing the crash.
Should I uninstall and reinstall MySQL?
Is there anything quicker than I can do?
