I just set up a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 on my VPS, and I cant for the life of me install or even locate MySQL server..
apt-cache search mysql
gives no results on mysql-server/mysqld-server
apt-get install mysqld-server
as well as many variations just gives the output in the title:
unable to locate package mysqld-server
I have added the universe repo, in which it should be located, but nothing. Google yields absolutely nothing on this, the only relevant info is just to run those commands, and to run another that is supposed to work:
apt-get install Lamp-server^
(may be misspelled a bit, but its close and I ran the correct one earlier) which also didn't work at all, it said the same thing, unable to locate package "etc"
Am I missing something here? should I have a specific repository I don't? should I be running a different command? or did ubuntu 12.04 drop mysql support or something?
Thanks for your time guys, hope I can get this to work, its driving me crazy.
