Default Ubuntu MYSQL Not Starting at Boot!


I recently bought an OpenVZ VPS and installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it. The OS template is from the official templates on OpenVZ.org. I installed and configured NginX, MYSQL and php 5.3 and got everything working fine. I even tested some CMSes and everything worked fine.

I decided to reboot the VPS today and when I try to access a wordpress based site, I get Error Establishing Database connection. I check on my MYSQL service and I realised that it wasn't running. I logged in as root and typed:

/etc/init.d/mysql start


ps aux

Mysql was running fine but it isn't starting up on boot. I even set it to start on all 4 levels but nothing changed.

Any ideas?

You should try to check the logs if there is any hint.
I suggest syslog and mysql logs.

Do you have symlinks in rcX.d/ to the mysql binary?
