Server & MySQL Expert for Server Fix


I have a dedicated server from 1&1 (1&1 Server 2012 L 4 Core) and have a number of sites sharing this. All of my websites have gone down and I can't access any of the websites or the Plesk control panel. There isn't much on the server so there shouldn't be a memory issue.

A few crons have just been set up on the server which may or may not have caused the issue.

I have rebooted the server but no luck.

I can FTP and SSH into the sites and root without issue.

I have tried to restart the MySQL service through Putty but get an error. I tried to check the status of MySQL and this is what I got....


login as: root

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.


Last failed login: Wed Oct 30 17:46:36 GMT 2013 from [url removed, login to view] on ssh:notty

There was 1 failed login attempt since the last successful login.

Last login: Tue Oct 29 22:08:26 2013 from [url removed, login to view]

Have a lot of fun...

s16532281:~ # service mysql status

redirecting to systemctl

[url removed, login to view] - LSB: Start the MySQL database server

Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/mysql)

Active: failed since Wed, 30 Oct 2013 01:36:32 +0000; 16h ago

Process: 9285 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/mysql start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

CGroup: name=systemd:/system/[url removed, login to view]


I would like a price for investigating the MySQL issue and resolving. All website data including all databases must be retained as is without any loss of data. This is an absolute must.

I will also need someone to continue to provide Linux server support going forward so I'm looking for a professional server administrator who knows everything there is to know about servers and can fix issues quickly and efficiently.

Thank you in advance
