Description:
Can't connect to database without getting error 1524 Plugin 'none' is not loaded. Where dose this come from? I was working fine before upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS. I have purged and reinstalled both mysql-server and mysql workbench-gpl and still get the error

How to repeat:
service start mysql-sever

No it is not. I have tried to start with --skip-grant-tables and still get the error

Have you checked if in the OS upgrade the original my.cnf was rewritten? .

# One can use all long options that the program supports.
# Run program with --help to get a list of available options and with
# --print-defaults to see which it would actually understand and use.

# For explanations see

Thank you for the feedback.

But we need MySQL Server error log. It is specified as /var/log/mysql/error.log in your configuration file.

Thank you for the feedback. Look your err file sounds an OS upgrade issue than a MySQL bug, please check for multiples servers instances alos for multiples my.cnf configuration files. Thanks.
[29 Jul 2013 16:33] James Niland
I only had one my.cnf file and once again purged Mysql and reinstalled and have come back to the same error SQLSTATE[HY000] [1524] Plugin 'none' is not loaded. What is plugin none and where is it loaded from? I ran netstat -tap | grep mysql and only one is shown. what do I do next?

Please check your err log file about InnoDB messages you have installed 5.5 server over a 5.1.69 install.
