Hi I would like to install moodle on maverick but it keeps giving me an error during the installation.

I have installed mysql before trying installing moodle; despite the fact that I have checked the use of mysql, the following error is shown:

nora@nora-laptop:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure moodle
Error - You have specified that you wish to use a mysql
database, but either mysql-server or mysql-client is 
not installed. You must install mysql-server and mysql-client
and then reconfigure moodle.
I am a newie to ubuntu pls be patient with me

ta a million
