i'm trying to install mysql packages but i get these errors..could someone tell me what i'm doing wrong?i didsudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
sudo apt-get install mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql [/quote]
My sincere apologies for asking something that obviously has been answered before. The fact that I'm posting is that i would like to be absolutely sure since it's about a live server running currently.
This is what happened. I'm accidentally the sysadmin for a dedicated server. There is tomcat running on the machine and using mysql as database.
So this morning I used aptitude to install a few security updates. Seemed innocent enough until stuff stopped working. Somewhere along the way, a few packages got dropped, I guess. Now PHP (specifically PHP5-FPM) doesn't think it's connected to MySQL and I have no idea why. All packages seem to be installed.
