Mysql has been working fine until now. Maybe upgrades and broken it. Running 5.5.43 on 12.04LTS. At first there was the error:

/usr/sbin/mysqld: unknown option '--explicit_defaults_for_timestamp'

in the error.log.

So I commented this option out in the my.cnf file and now it still will not start and there are no further error messages. How do I turn on more verbose messaging to see the error?

Problem solved. I ran sudo apt-get install --reinstall mysql-server and this upgraded from 5.5 to 5.6. Oh well. But at least I have a running mysqld.
