MySQL failing , not connecting to database and "Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed" in phpmyadmin

  • Posted December 2, 2014

From time to time something goes wrong with MySQL, I get the above error and no databases will connect.

The only way I can fix it is by running

“sudo shutdown -r now”

Has anyone any suggestions for fixing this issue, or getting the cause of it? I found this thread but no luck there…

Im running Ubuntu 14.04

Thank you!
