My problem started yesterday night when I tried to change the my.cnf config on my ubuntu 12.04 x64 System. I simply tried to changed the bind-address parameter from 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0.
A simple restart after a reboot gave this error:
stop: Unknown instance: start: Job failed to start
I tried to start mysql then by using 'mysqld' which outputs this:
130701 11:05:59 [Note] Plugin 'FEDERATED' is disabled. mysqld: Table 'mysql.plugin' doesn't exist 130701 11:05:59 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table.

Meanwhile I already tried to reinstall and purge the complete mysql package which results in another error which says that dpkg cant change the admins password.
While this error appeared another error came with it. When trying to install something new with apt, it always says 'fopen: permission denied' right after it tries to update my man-db.
This is my dmesg output:
[ 6879.687998] type=1400 audit(1372669683.397:36): apparmor="STATUS" operation="profile_replace" name="/usr/sbin/mysqld" pid=9336 comm="apparmor_parser" [ 6881.323215] init: mysql main process (9340) terminated with status 1 [ 6881.323316] init: mysql respawning too fast, stopped
Any help will be appreciated as this is a productive server which renders useless without mysql.
