Overnight one of our servers had too many connections. Upon rebooting I now get the following via Plesk:
ERROR: PleskFatalException Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
0: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/common_func.php3:108 psaerror(string 'Unable to connect to database: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)') 1: /usr/local/psa/admin/auto_prepend/auth.php3:93
When SSHing in, and trying to reboot MySQL I get 'Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon'.
Could someone shed some light on this as it's a bit of an emergency. This is a live dedicated server and hasn't been touched in terms of configuration for a long while.
It's a Centos 5.1 install.
