ubuntu 14.04 no /etc/mysql folder after installing

I am trying to install mysql and later phpmyadmin on a ubuntu 14.04 server after initial install.

So far I have configured Apache.

there is no mysql folder inside /etc/

I used the command
sudo apt-get install mysql-server to install mysql

When I do this I have no prompt for a password and the mysql folder is still not created inside /etc/ but it says it installed anyway.


First of all, I'd advice you to follow this link:


Second, as mentioned in the link, sometimes (though in my case it took care of itself), you may need to activate MySQL installation using sudo mysql_install_db
