I have been seaching the forum and checking for resolutions to the problem I have for the last 10 hours. Time to ask for help.

Zimbra Release 5.0.0_GA_1869.UBUNTU6 UBUNTU6 FOSS edition upgraded from version 4.5.5GA

Zimbra version 4.5.5GA Ran fine for 3 months. Upgraded to version 5.0.0GA over the weekend and all seemed to be fine. All accounts intact and accessible.

This morning found that I never tested outgoing e-mail and it was not being delivered. Decided to first try rebooting server since that had not been done during the upgrade. at that point I was no longer able to reach the server.

under SU zimbra:

antispam Running
antivirus Running
ldap Running
logger Running
mailbox Stopped
mysql.server is not running
zmmailboxdctl is not running
mta Running
snmp Running
spell Running
stats Stopped

Run mysql mysql and get:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/opt/zimbra/db/mysql.sock' (2)

Run HOST and get:
host: /opt/zimbra/openssl/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/libdns.so.21)
localhost has address
Host localhost not found: 2(SERVFAIL)
Host localhost not found: 2(SERVFAIL)

I have tried checking rights on directories, re-running install.sh as an upgraded, looked at hosts files. I can not get MYSQLD or MYSQL.SERVER to run.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
