• mysql-server-core-5.7
  • myssql-client-5.7
  • mysql-workbench 6.3.6+dfsg-0ubuntu1
  • Ubuntu 16.04.1
  • Linux 4.4.0-64-generic #85-Ubuntu SMP

I discovered /etc/mysql/mysql-fabric-doctrine-1.4.0.zip and /etc/mysql/fabric.cfg, and no other files containing mysql in the filename, nothing in the rc*.d in /etc.

Three times apt-get remove and apt-get install gave the same result.

Is it:

  • a bug in install procedure?
  • a problem between 32bit application and 64bit system?
  • another problem?

digitalocean page and nixCraft page explains how to install MySql 5.7 on Ubuntu 16.04

The steps are:

  1. update your system

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
  2. Install both - mysql client & server

    sudo apt install mysql-server mysql-client

    Note: You need to type the password for the MySQL root user:

  3. Run mysql_secure_installation to secure your installation

    sudo mysql_secure_installation
  4. Testing MySql

    systemctl status mysql.service

You should see that it is running

Please review the full instructions in the provided links.

  • Something wrong : ` sudo mysql_secure_installation` : command not found ... not include in the package – cl-r Mar 4 '17 at 22:13

    @cl-r I'm sorry, the following install step sudo apt installmysql-client should come before running mysql_secure_installation (it wasn't mentioned in the provided link and I missed it) – Yaron Mar 5 '17 at 8:54
