MySQL Server Configuration

MySQL : Crash and Upgrade

Today, I face a new problem with MySQL. I got the database to crash quite a few times since morning. Event logs shows that there is a fault in mysqld.exe, but that error was not very clear on specific reason of fault. After searching for articles and forums, I got a hint that in past [about 3-4 yrs], one guy has same random crash problem and he found that crash was related to some store procedure. This give me a clue and I found that in my case it is a corrupted database file. I need to investigate as why that database got corrupted as it is the latest database created in system and was working fine just another day.

Anyways, this lead me to upgrade database server after 6-7 months. It was pretty easy though, just download the new version and run the setup. everything was done automatically. Isn’t it that very simple.
