Unable to install MySQL on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
I’m trying to install MySQL on Ubuntu 14.04.2, (Ubuntu Ruby on Rails on 14.04 (Postgres, Nginx, Unicorn) to be specific).
I’m running this command to install -
sudo apt-get install mysql-serve as root
During the installation, I’m encountering this error -
Setting up mysql-server-core-5.5 (5.5.43-0ubuntu0.14.04.1) ... Setting up mysql-server-5.5 (5.5.43-0ubuntu0.14.04.1) ... 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 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 (2.19-0ubuntu6.6) ...

Any idea what’s going wrong?
