    Unanswered: MySQL fails to start after Ubuntu upgrade

    After an upgrade from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10, mysql stopped running. I tried starting it manually and it failed. What could be wrong ? Logs seem to be empty.

    Code:
    ~$ sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
    [sudo] password for anjanesh: 
     * Starting MySQL database server mysqld                                 [fail] 
    ~$ cat /var/log/mysql
    mysql/          mysql.log.1.gz  mysql.log.4.gz  mysql.log.7.gz
    mysql.err       mysql.log.2.gz  mysql.log.5.gz  
    mysql.log       mysql.log.3.gz  mysql.log.6.gz  
    ~$ cat /var/log/mysql.err 
    ~$ cat /var/log/mysql.log
    MySQL 5.1

    I don't know what happened during the upgrade but it looked like it changed the mysql settings. sudo apt-get install mysql-server seemed to have solved the problem. How did mysql get removed in the first place, I dont know.
