Since I've got no privileged user in my current MySQL-installation on 12.04 LTS I want to re-install the mysql-server completely by using:

sudo apt-get purge mysql-server

After a very short while I get these errors:

apache2: Syntax error on line 210 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/fcgid.load: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_fcgid.so into server: /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_fcgid.so: undefined symbol: unixd_config

ERROR: Config file dir.conf not properly enabled: /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dir.conf is a real file, not touching it

Errors happened during editting :




Does anyone have a clue what I can do about this? I tried everything to get rid of the pesky Access Denied for 'root'@'localhost' but can't get it to work.
