I recently made a mistake and messed up my MySQL server on my local Ubuntu machine. I've tried everything to get it to work but can't. I uninstalled and reinstalled it but can't get it back to normal.
When I run '/etc/init.d/mysql start' it always says fail. Weird thing is if I run that command with Sudo it starts the server.
Any advice on how to restore things and fix this is much appreciated.
