server crashed



this evening i came home and had got an ICQ message from one of my friends, saying that my server (debian woody) did not work correctly. i checked the server and found out that mysql, php and the ssh-server obviously had crashed. apache, samba and proftpd were still running. i did not have a monitor for the server and so the only choice i had was pressing the reset button. the computer rebooted but did not finish. so i took the monitor of my mainsys and used it for the server. on the screen, i found the following message:

so i turned off the computer and turned it on again after a short time. i got this error again. so i have no clue what the problem could be.
this afternoon a schoolmate asked me if he could put his website on my little server. i agreed and created accounts for ftp and for mysql for him. i also gave him the url of the phpMyAdmin. i don't know what this guy has done, and i don't know if it's possible to cause such an error just using an ftp account (of course he was locked in his home directory) and mysql.
i really don't know what to do know

p.s.: sorry for my bad english... i'm german

Well what I would try to do first in this situation is boot with a rescue floppy you should have created for this type of situation during the initial install, try to get into the system and view some log files.. Or maybe try to boot into runlevel 1 to do some system administration and find out what caused all of this.
I'm not totally familiar with Debian but hopefully you got some sort of boot up rescue media... if you don't, there are others out there you can try and download to get back into your system, like Toms Boot Root..

hm well i do not have any kind of rescue disk for this system
so i got a copy of Toms Root Boot disk and it works fine, i was able to mount the partition which contains all the data, and i can check the logfiles.. but within the logfiles (apache, mysql) everything seems to be allright
so i could put another hdd into the computer, copy all my data and the config files and then re-install debian. but this would be hard work and i would like to avoid it.
so does anyone know how to fix it without re-installing the whole system?
