I've never encountered a MySQL db that can't be opened because it's too 
big. What exactly is the problem? "It has gone wrong" isn't very 
descriptive. :) Systems don't just stop working for no reason. It might 
be more productive to figure out why it stopped working and get it 
going. It should be quite feasible for someone who understands Linux to 
do that.
