My Raspberry Pi 3b running Raspbian Stretch with desktop, Release 2017-09-07.
I want to install the "LAMP" on my Raspberry Pi.
I successfully install apache2 and PHP, and went on to install the mysql-server when the problem appeared.
I got this question for this days.
1. When I used the Official default sources
deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi and use
sudo apt-get install mysql-serverto install mysql but the system was installed the "mariadb" as the result. And it don`t ask me the root password.
Then I reset the root password and go on install other software was succeed. But when I use the phpmyadmin or WordPress to control the mysql database. I can`t use the Root and password to login the phpmyadmin or WordPress.
2. When I use the Tsinghua University sources
deb http://mirrors.aliyun.com/raspbian/raspbian/ jessie main non-free contrib deb-src http://mirrors.aliyun.com/raspbian/raspbian/ jessie main non-free contrib
sudo apt-get install mysql-server to install .The result was different.
The code is back.
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install mysql-server

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
