Alright so this does not appear to be working correctly with latest 3.4 of EE.
Firstly my remote mysql is just fine. I have existing sites and would like to migrate db to a new local mysql.
sudo ee stack status shows: MySQL is not installed HHVM is not installed nginx : Running php5-fpm : Running postfix : Running
sudo ee stack install --mysql produces MySQL connection is already alive
I have reverted /etc/mysql/conf.d/my.cnf to defaults i.e. no [host] entry.
So now looking for a nice ee way to put mysql on the localhost.
There’s definitely NO mysql running on localhost although sudo ee info produces: MySQL (5.5.47) on localhost:
port 3306 wait_timeout 300 interactive_timeout 28800 max_used_connections 37 datadir /var/lib/mysql/ socket /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
I assume something in the ee script is confused.
