mysqld: unrecognized service


I have installed LAMP on Ubuntu 11.04. PHP works fine but,when I try to access mysql, I get

Code:
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)
In the past I have fixed this problem with

Code:
sudo service mysqld restart
but now that gives me

Code:
mysqld: unrecognized service
I subsequently tried

Code:
sudo apt-get remove mysql-server
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
but it did not make any difference. I then tried

Code:
sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation
also to no avail.

Any help resolving this would be most appreciated,
Peter

Try These command

sudo apt-get purge mysql-server mysql-common
sudo apt-get purge mysql-client

sudo apt-get autoremove mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common


sudo apt-get autoclean mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common


To reinstall:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-common mysql-client

Thank you very much! I think that fixed the problem but it's hard to tell since the password I set during the installation doesn't work. I tried two different passwords and tried just hitting return for the password. I always get the following message.

Code:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
when I enter

Code:
mysql --user=root --password=MyPassword
Thanks,
Peter.
