    I am having a heck of a time getting mysql installed.


    [FAIL] Starting MySQL database server: mysqld . . . . . . . . . . . . . . failed!
    invoke-rc.d: initscript mysql, action "start" failed.

    Any help? I have done a complete reinstall.

    apt-get remove --purge mysql\*
    dpkg -1 | grep -1 mysql
    apt-get clean
    updatedb

    Then tried installing, but every time it ends up the same.

    I'm one of those "Don't use MySQL" people, so I'm here if you want to use something else,but otherwise just ignore me.

    On *NIX? Can't help you there.

    Looks like a parse error in a config file though:

    Well thanks for the try. I have looked all through out the cfg files and nothing seems wrong...dumped several of them into my dev programs and no errors. I will just continue searching for an answer. I knew there were a couple of linux guru's on the site and was hoping for a quick solution..lol. never seems to work out that way.

    It took forever for me to get MySQL correctly installed and running on Linux, granted I wasn't using a Debian distro. Good luck.

    Thing is I had it running with no problems. I did a bunch of updates and installed a backup utility called Acronis. Now everything is eff'd up, luckily this was not a live server...but it has moved from a testing environment to a live setup and now I need to get mysql backup and running...I do not want to reinstall the OS because the server is being used for a file server and intranet based web services.
