Running MySQL server

September 25, 2007

I thought I have my MySQL server installed by Synaptic Package Manager but in fact I haven’t.   I was trying to log into the sever via phpmyadmin but couldn’t.  Tried again via command line using

/etc/init.d/mysql start

but failed.   Decided to install it again by command line

apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client php5-mysql

Bingo, I got it finally I could login by username = ‘root’ and password = ‘nothing’.
