CentOS-6.0 Hangs on start up

Hi Friends,

I am using CentOS-6.0-x86_64 and It works fine past 2 months.
But there is a problem now, My system hangs on start up (Bootstrap Image of Centos 6). But the services are running in back end like appache (httpd, mysqld) is working good.
But I am not able to login with any user. Its hangs on this start up.

Shall I update the Os. Is that will solve the issue ?. If I update My php my sql database will delete ha?

Please anyone to help to solve this issue.

It's interesting, but this kind of thing doesn't happen on its own. Have you updated the system recently or made any changes to it before the first reboot it did this?

Try editing grub, when you start up press "e" and add this to your startup line (the one that starts "linux"):

<end of line> rw init=/bin/bash

If the line ends with ro, change it to rw. Then boot it with the specified key (it says which one at the bottom).

That should give you a passwordless root shell so that you can look into what's causing the system to hang. Check out any error messages your boot process results in.
