help with mysql installation on ubuntu or debian (minimal)

immyimmy Member

I am trying to install MySQL Server on my vps. I have tried using ubuntu 12.04 minimal / ubuntu 14.04 minimal and Debian 7 minimal (all 32 bit) but each time I have an unconfigured mysql installation. Below is the out that I get when I check the installation. I get similar error when I do "apt-get install mysql-server". Could anyone please advise something. I will be thankful.
I cannot use full image instead of minimal as I need to install most things from scratch including apache and all the concerned stuff.

Here is the other output:

root@server:~# apt-get install -f

Waiting for your valuable feedback.
