Howdy -- you would want to determine what error MySQL is throwing, either on the command line or in the error logs.

Knowing the error will help resolve the issue.

However, you appear to be using Virtualmin GPL there. If you're using Virtualmin GPL, we'd encourage you to use the Forums if you're interested in free community support. We monitor the Forums, along with lots of wonderful folks in the community!

If you create a new post in the Forums, let us know what error it is you're seeing.

Also let us know if something on your server has changed recently.

Alternatively, we do offer Professional Services, where we charge $125 an hour to provide assistance and resolve problems. If you prefer, we could log into your server and resolve the problem right away. While it's difficult to say what the problem is without looking, I would estimate that we would only need to charge for an hour to resolve that issue.
