May I ask why you didn't install it from the standard repositories using aptitude(8)?

Please check your installer's logs to see where it placed files (especially the init script needed to start MySQL). You can also list the files under /etc/init.d to look for something obvious of a slightly different name than I mentioned.

So MySQL server was not installed when you started this thread. Please pick up the books I recommended. Also consider familiarizing yourself with aptitude(8).
