    Re: Getting mySQL server back on Ubuntu 12.04

    I had the same symptons as mthornton. The solution that leandroqm proposed worked great.

    sudo apt-get clean

    sudo apt-get autoclean

    sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common mysql-server mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5

    sudo apt-get install mysql-server

    Rant: I upgraded to 12.04, and all I can say is it sucks, and Unity is an abomination. Switching workspaces and applications is cumbersome, and there is effectively no configuration capability. People who want eye-candy can buy a Mac.

    Re: Getting mySQL server back on Ubuntu 12.04

    Thanks folks,
    this thread is an extremly usefull one! Not so common these days, but this solution worked for me. So, good job !!!

    And btw,I AM happy with Ubuntu AND Unity, because i started with Linux at times when the final clou after installing linux on a Systems was:

    "root&: have fun ! "

    This System today is not just "eye-candy" but Usability! It's in fact the first Linux that can be marketed to customers without except, because people don't have to be computer scientist to do effective work with it. And that counts on propagation, so we will have to make some compromise.

    Re: Getting mySQL server back on Ubuntu 12.04

    I've tried

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    
    sudo apt-get autoclean
    
    sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common mysql-server mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5
    
    sudo apt-get install mysql-server
    I'm still getting the same results as before which are identical to mthorntons.

    It's unfortunate this thread is marked as solved! There's some reputation and endless gratitude to anyone that provides the answer to this problem on superuser:
    superuser.com/questions/502822/cant-start-mysql5-5-on-ubuntu-12-04-dpkg-dependency-problems

    If there's no love by tomorrow I'll check for an unsolved thread or post a new one.

    Re: Getting mySQL server back on Ubuntu 12.04

    Looking at the logs it seems to me the issue reported here by archonic_one is different from what I had. In my case mysql-server-5.5 was not even installing, while for archonic_one it installs but configuration fails.

    I tried a bunch of other things before finding the proper solution, maybe the folk having this later issue could also try those. Apart from that I can't help much more.

    Good luck.

    I was getting this error because my loopback device was up but not responding (OpenVZ). If your /var/log/mysql/error.log has this while installing:

    Code:
    130622 19:49:42 [Note] Server hostname (bind-address): '127.0.0.1'; port: 3306130622 19:49:42 [Note]   - '127.0.0.1' resolves to '127.0.0.1';
    130622 19:49:42 [Note] Server socket created on IP: '127.0.0.1'.
    130622 19:49:42 [ERROR] Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Cannot assign requested address
    130622 19:49:42 [ERROR] Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 3306 ?
    130622 19:49:42 [ERROR] Aborting
    Try this
    Code:
    ifconfig lo up
    Then re-try
    Code:
    apt-get install mysql-server
    If that works, then you'll want to make sure the loopback interface comes up on reboot. The work-around can be found here: http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=msg&goto=26825&

    A further tweak to the above:

    Some init scripts (postfix in particular, in my case) expect the network interfaces to be available when they run, and rc.local is running too late (priority 99) in the init order.

    So I've moved the contents of the rc.local script posted earlier into a new /etc/init.d/networking-restart script, and set its priority to S15/K85, so that it runs before most other init scripts. (It could probably go earlier; I just chose 15 because it was before ssh and postfix.) The following installs the new init script into the init start/stop queues:

    Code: [Select all] [Show/ hide]

    update-rc.d networking-restart start 15 2 3 4 5 . stop 85 0 1 6 .



    Again, this doesn't solve the issue, only provides a work-around, each step a little better than the previous. I don't know how to incorporate this into the official Ubuntu image, but I would be pleased to see it. And, of course, suggestions for further improvements are welcomed.

    Re: Getting mySQL server back on Ubuntu 12.04

    Run one by one the commands bellow, and not all together.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common mysql-client-*
    
    sudo apt-get autoremove sudo
    
    apt-get autoclean
    #make sure you have backed up everything before you run this:
    Code:
    rm -rf /var/lib/mysql
    rm -rf /etc/mysql*
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-5.5
    I found most usefull:
