[solved] MySQL service issue - corrupted ibdata1 file

yunohost: 2.5.6
yunohost.admin:  2.5.1
moulinette: 2.5.2
ssowat: 2.6.1

Hi,

This weekend, I migrated from owncloud to nextcloud. I also upgraded yunohost from 2.5.5 to 2.5.6.

Since that, baikal seems broken, accessing to myDomain.fr/baikal or myDomain.fr/baikal/admin displays:

Baïkal was not able to establish a connexion to the configured MySQL database (as configured in Specific/config.system.php).

edit: nextcloud is also dead “HTTP ERROR 500” (it was working yesterday after the migration from owncloud…)
Many errors in the nginx domain log /var/log/nginx/monDomain.fr-error.log

Could it be linked to what is described in this thread? A conflict between nextcloud and baikal?

If I remove baikal and nextcloud before to re-install them, will I lost my data (contacts, calendars, files)?

I have the feeling that my problem is actually linked to a corruption of a mySQL table, due to an electrical power shutdown (that actually occurred yesterday, just before the problems started).

If I try to connect to mysql, I get the following message:

# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can t connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

A similar issue can be found in this discussion.

I found that my corrupted table is this one:

# myisamchk -a *.MYI  | grep error
/var/lib/mysql/mysql/#sql-3e94_1.MYI

Any idea to fix/investigate the issue?

I don’t know how close to your this is, but here is a wiki page on how I’ve managed to fixed a self-corrupted mysqldb on internet cubes : https://wiki.labriqueinter.net/howto:fix_self_corrupt_mysql

Warning: this is quite long to do and quite technical :confused:

Indeed, it seems tricky. But what could be the alternative? Does anyone knows for what purpose is the corrupted table used for? Could I reset/erase it and what would I lose?

edit: after investigation, it seems that the table which was corrupted (#sql-3e94_1.MYI) was a useless temporary file. I removed that file, and the other ones seem not corrupted (no output when running “myisamchk -a *.MYI | grep error”).

Nevertheless, mysql service does not starts:

# systemctl status mysql.service
● mysql.service - LSB: Start and stop the mysql database server daemon

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.

What else could I investigate? Thanks for any support.

The problem is coming from a corrupted “/var/lib/mysql/ibdata1” file.

  • with the current ibdata1 file, the service does not start (Even “mysqld_safe” can not start).
  • if I erase the ibdata1 file, the service starts (a new ibdata1 file is created) but it is logged that many tables are missing (for baikal, nextcloud, rainloop…). Of course.

I have a save of the /var/lib/mysql/ files (from two weeks ago). So I could restore them. BUT, in between, I have migrated from owncloud to nextcloud.

So I think I should :

  1. remove Nextcloud
  2. install Owncloud (from github)
  3. restore my previous mysql files
  4. upgrade to Nextcloud

Do you agree?

Sorry, that’s really out of my field of knowledge :confused:

There is apparently a procedure to attempt to restore ibdata1 https://dba.stackexchange.com/questions/45991/mysql-ibdata1-corrupt

I guess your approach could work but I’m really not sure about it, sorry :confused:

I did it. It worked!

The stackoverflow procedure?

No, the one I described in my previous message.

Not so obvious, actually. But I was finally able to get my system back with nextcloud working. To be honest, I lost some of my data (I use nextcloud only to sync files and for the calendars).
