Still not working...
I did the installation a long time ago. I did somehow change the mysql's root login to "mysql". I do remember changing some config file. I am quite sure that I did not put a password for whatever login name I had assigned. Now I don't even remember where the config file is...!
I found the web page from where I learned to install mysql server. http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_c...ySQL_On_Ubuntu
. There is a section in my.cnf
that goes like:
# * Basic Settings
# * IMPORTANT
# If you make changes to these settings and your system uses apparmor, you may
# also need to also adjust /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld.
user = mysql
pid-file = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
socket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
port = 3306
basedir = /usr
datadir = /var/lib/mysql
tmpdir = /tmp
language = /usr/share/mysql/english
Yeah I think I messed up there (see the underlined part)...I don't know what I did here or why i did it...?
