I cannot restart MySQL

Dec 11, 2013 by ross
Hi all
I have been trying to restart MySQL, however it is just not working. I tried to reboot but nothing happens. I checked for messages in my cPanel and I found the message:
Waiting for MySQL to restart … then finished.

how can I restart my SQL? Can anyone please help?

check that you have enough available free space. Your error file might be too big, if it is and you don’t have a lot of free space, delete the error file.  This might also helo http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/WHMDocs/ManageHDSpace
