My hamshack computer is a wonder box of many functions. It functions as my personal computer and as a local network server. I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04.1 from 18.04.x. On the personal side I use Ham radio applications. On the server side I am trying to set up a development/test server for web applications. On 18.04 I had CQRLOG working with MySQL as well as Joomla! working with the same server with the server running as a service. I am having the same issues as others trying to use MySQL and not getting it to work but that is another discussion.
My main question here is how do I set up CQRLOG with the existing database server? CQRLOG seems to want to run its own instantiation of the database server. What "magic" do I use as far as CQRLOG is concerned to have it recognize the existing server and use the database that I backed-up from my previous Ubuntu version which I think was running CQRLOG 2.4. I password protect the server just in case anyone penetrates my network for nefarious reasons.
