Errno 2 when creating database in MySql on Debian
I have installed mysql-client and mysql-server, and can successfully login as the root user using the password chosen during installation.
While logged in I am able to create users, but when I try to create a database, I get "errno: 2" error. My google searches suggest that this most likely has to do with file permissions in the mysql data directory, but I wasn't able to find information regarding post-installation permissions in the DO MySql instructions.
Thanks for any advice on how to resolve this error!
