Unhappy Issue Starting MySQL Daemon

I have just come across the most random error I've seen my MySQL daemon spew out yet, everything was working fine, then all of a sudden it randomly crashed and it now outputting this when I start it up, not sure if it's because my 'my.cnf' file is minimal

Here's my 'my.cnf':

    # Settings user and group are ignored when systemd is used.
    # If you need to run mysqld under different user or group,
    # customize your systemd unit file for mysqld according to the
    # instructions in
    # Disabling symbolic-links is recommended to prevent assorted security risks
Here's the errors:

120817  3:47:26 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled.
    120817  3:47:26 InnoDB: The InnoDB memory heap is disabled

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys!

With a minimum config file and sudden crash, I suspect that it is something simple, without reviewing your config file. A little googling brought up [URL=""]. For confirmation, has a more detailed, if you will, explanation. Also make sure that only one config file is referenced: /etc/my.cnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf /usr/etc/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf.


daemon, dedicated, fedora, mysql, server
