Hi all!
I've restored a backup of the folder on a clean machine lampp with Ubuntu 14.04, but mysql doesn't want to start. The log is:

Code: Select all

I tried to edit the Group and permissions, but refuses to start mysq. Some help?

Your linux installation lacks the user "Mysql". This is usually created by the installation procedure (which you did not execute). Create user mysql and try again.
