Below you can see the part of the log showing the crash. The replication server is 5.6 and the master 5.5 but this setup has worked with warnings for the last week or so. Now, after trying to change some user permissions, the replication server crashed and won't load again. Any ideas on where to start?
18:39:32 UTC - mysqld got signal 11 ; 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=262144 read_buffer_size=524288 max_used_connections=1 max_threads=200 thread_count=2 connection_count=0 It is possible that mysqld could use up to key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 156591 K bytes of memory Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.
