I accidentally drop the database mysql. I now cannot restore tables to the
database or do much of anything some details can be found here
after a few unsuccessful uninstalled/reinstalls i wrote whereis mysql and rm
-rf every directory in that list. I ran `dpkg -P mysql-server`. `apt-get
install mysql-server` saw "Stopping MySQL database server: mysqld.", ran
`/etc/init.d/mysql start` and got the error "Starting MySQL database server:
mysqld . . . . . . . . . . . . . . failed!".
I wrote whereis mysql again and got NO DIRECTORIES.
How do i properly reinstall this?
I cant even restore my backups because of this.
Yes i did all of this as root
