Fixing “InnoDB: Error: log file ./ib_logfile0 is of different size” Error

Jun 12 2012 Published by under Uncategorized

So you wanted to change the value of “innodb_log_file_size” on your mysql server.

As it happens, you can’t just change it the “my.cnf” file, restart and make it work. If you do, Mysql will refuse to start and throw this error instead. You can the details of the startup error in your mysql error log file. 

To safely change this setting follow these steps

  1. Shutdown your mysql server, make sure to check the error log that the shutdown had no issues
  2. Move the “ib_logfile0″ and “ib_logfile1″ files from your mysql data directory.
  3. Change “innodb_log_file_size” to your desired setting.
  4. Restart mysql. Check the error log to make sure everything started successfully, mysql may complain that the log files don’t exist, it will make new ones and start. 

Make sure if you are changing things on a production server, you take due care of the mysql downtime due to the changes and restart, and have backups to recover quickly in case something goes wrong.

Surprising Yourself!!

Jan 24 2012 Published by under Uncategorized

With every strip my goals is to surprise myself. If I’m not surprised, the reader surely won’t be either. The surprises are usually fairly small, so it’s a real delight when an idea pops in from Pluto.

I was reading Calvin and Hobbes recently and came across this foot note.

Arthur C. Clarke’s three law of prediction

Aug 26 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Well, I guess we have seen enough to know these laws apply in most places :)

Its always been a level playing field

Aug 01 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

Something I realized in the past week or so. 

In business, its always a level playing field. If you are passionate about what you do, there is nothing really stopping you from doing what you want. 

Especially, in this day and age, everybody can be the next google or microsoft, and everybody plays by these same rules as you or any other startup. 

So get out there, have an idea ? Go ahead make it a reality.
