Just installed Ubuntu 22.04 from scratch and then CQRLOG. When launching the program for the first time I get this message:
"MySQL could not be started, please check if the MySQL server is installed properly."
But, "service mysql status" tells me that it is running. I can also log in to MySQL DB using "sudo mysql -u root".
As told in the dialog box, the last 20 lines of the error file (there are only 8):

My goal is to store my log on a NAS and if I just can get a MySQL dump of an empty database I will be very happy :-)
