I am trying to install mysql server on ubuntu 14.0.4.
When I ran
sudo apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql
I got a message to set root password.
- When I did not set a password, it kept asking for password
- When I set a password, it mentioned that password has changed.
start: Job failed to start invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "start" failed. dpkg: error processing package mysql-server-5.5 (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Setting up libhtml-template-perl (2.95-1) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mysql-server: mysql-server depends on mysql-server-5.5; however: Package mysql-server-5.5 is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing package mysql-server (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.19-0ubuntu6.4) ... Errors were encountered while processing: mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Then I tried the following step but it failed:
