Crashing after reverting back to MySQL [Updated]

I decided to try Percona on one of my servers to see how well it performed.

I was using MySQL 5.0 so I installed Percona 5.0 but I heard Percona 5.5 was better, so I upgraded it.

After a while I removed Percona and all Percona libraries, reinstalled MySQL, and restored a backup I had made before I installed Percona. (The database itself, not a dump of the queries to create it)

Now I’m being bombarded with errors. I tried with a fresh install of MySQL with the default databases too.

mysqld.log:

I created a database test, with the table example and inserted a few random rows.

The following on browser errors I receive:

Lost connection to MySQL server during query

MySQL server has gone away

Sometimes MySQL will shutdown after, forcing me to restart the daemon.

I’ve been working for days trying different things but I can’t solve this issue.

Can any one help me?

Try restoring the backup to MySQL 5.5 or Percona 5.5 to see if that helps. Maybe you took the backup at a later time than you think?

Also, hopefully you kept the database files that you upgraded to Percona 5.5, since you could use those to get a mysqldump and then go back to MySQL 5.0.

It’s not the backup that’s the issue. I reinstalled MySQL, removing all data from /var/lib/mysql/ then running mysql_secure_installation.

I then created a test database, which failed to perform correctly as indicated in the error log. Whether I’m using 5.0 or 5.5 it still fails.
