I cannot restart MySQL

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  this error file located at/var/lib/mysql/<yourserverhostname>.err . look at the end of the file for related errors that could help you know the problem.

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
