Why is MySQL installation failing on my freshly-created droplet?
I have been following the steps in these tutorials:
I am at step 2 of the MySQL setup, where I am instructed to run
sudo mysql_secure_installation. Unfortunately, I encounter the following error:
Process: 12721 ExecStartPre=/usr/share/mysql/mysql-systemd-start pre (code=exi ted, status=1/FAILURE)
This is my first time deploying a Rails application and I don’t have much idea how to interpret/solve technical problems like this. I just want to deploy my app. Can anyone help?
