Problem after reboot

Hello folks, im here because i need help in my owncloud server.

The person who made the setup of the server is no longer arround, and i was left in charge of the owncloud.

i made a reboot on the server, and now i cant enter in the webversion of the cloud where you set up the users and control what folders to share with what account.

Exception occurred while logging exception: Failed to connect to the database: An exception occured in driver: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory

This is the error im getting, i get a feeling that i must start some service on the server, but i have no idea what…

Can anyone help me? and sorry if the questions are dumb


i think it could be possible that your Database (MySQL / PostgreSQL) isn’t running anymore after the restart.

i ran sudo service mysql start, got this error:

Job for mysql.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status mysql.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.


so i think the information you get there is a good starting point where to look for this issue in your MySQL server.
