Mysql with INNODB crashes always on startup

When I upgraded my ubuntu server to a more recent mysql version, the mysql server didn't come up anymore.

The error.log said:

InnoDB: Log scan progressed past the checkpoint lsn 0 726937418
110103 23:55:57  InnoDB: Database was not shut down normally!

The deamon.log only stated:

Jan  3 23:55:57 myhostname init: mysql post-start process (28722) terminated with status 1

On the web I found the hint to add skip-innodb, which didn't help, because I needed innodb for this project.

The solution was (thanks


# mv /var/lib/mysql/ib* /root/

This moved the inno db index files and after that I restarted mysql and everything was fine again.

# restart mysql
