Occasionally for various reasons my webhost 'reboots' my VPS after doing some routine maintenance or upgrades. However when they do, or if I reboot the server for any reason myself, mysql doesn't restart.
To restart it I need to ssh in and run...
service mysql start
How can I make it start automatically like the other programs my website depends on to work properly. Otherwise users of my site see the site down until I can get in and fix it.
Is this an issue with Ubuntu Server or is it my vps host?
