When I browse to my website, I'm seeing "Database connection error (2): Could not connect to MySQL."  I notice the MySQL55 service is not running, and will not start "error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."  I dig down into the MySQL directory and bring up the .err file.  it shows the following:

This is a VMware esxi guest.  MySQL has worked until just recently.  What do I need to do?  Thanks

Did you consider restoring MySQL on another guest?

Do you run regular (scheduled) snapshots (or backups) of the guest?

negative.  its backed up using symantec system restore.  I think thats due to esxi being the free version.

I've resolved my problem.  all indication is that MySQL 1117 error points to hardware failure.  basically, I cleared out resources on a different vm host, and used VMware converter to move my vm from the bad host to the new host.
