Chromebook xfce mysql setup

 Here are the steps i used to setup mysql on xfce (chromebook)

  1. open terminal
  2. run sudo apt-get install mysql-server
    1. during the installation, you will be asked to enter the root password for the mysql instance - this is not the password for the root user for linux.
  3. restart the server to get it running using sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart
    1. you may get some warning - you can ignore that
  4. for security setup, run mysql_secure_installation. you can set the password rules, connection rules etc. here
  5. restart again using step 3
  6. check status using sudo /etc/init.d/mysql status and you should get the below response (or something similar to that)
