I'm a complete n00b when it comes to linux administration, however I've had an ubuntu distro running now for about 2 months with no probs (PHP, Apache2, MySQL). Then yesterday i tried to install and configure an MTA and MTU (Which didn't work) but since then MySQL server has stopped working and I have no idea why, I've got WebMin installed and that says "MySQL is not running on your system - database list could not be retrieved." PHPMyAdmin says "#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)". Iv'e tried restarting manually with /etc/init.d/mysql start with no avail. Just completely stumped!
