I have been having trouble with my MySql setup. This morning it was a working mysql server I added a database and some data with phpMyAdmin then things started to go wrong.
I became unable to connect getting ERROR 2002 unable to connect to socket.
I have completley unistalled mysql server (as best I can) and deleted database files. And now I cannot reinstall it. I get a dpkg error "post-instalation script returned error exit status 1".
Running dpkg-reconfigure reports that "mysql-server-5.1 is broken or not fully installed" how do I find out what it is looking for?
The only thing I have removed is the mysql-server packages, I did install vsftpd at some point shortly before MySql stopped woking, is this known to break MySql??
Any thoughts apreciated
