I'm using ubuntu 14.04 and did a apt-get install phpmyadmin I went through the install process and forgot to check off an option to install it for apache2. The install didn't finish, but it must have edited something on my system and I can't seem to start mysqld anymore.
root@drupalpro:/var/log/mysql# service mysql start * Starting MariaDB database server mysqld [fail] root@drupalpro:/var/log/mysql# service mysql status * MariaDB is stopped. root@drupalpro:/var/log/mysql#
When starting mysqld it just says starting and then hits me back to the prompt. And mysql isn't started at all.
How would one fix something like this? This is crazy that just because I forgot to check off a checkbox it just screwed up my entire system.
