How to solve Ubuntu 22.04 potential custom configuration file issue with Local

Hi there!

This tip is for Ubuntu users. Today, after upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Local stopped creating or importing sites.

During the upgrade I didn’t pay attention and just clicked YES to everything. Ubuntu 22.04 replaced all the configuration files including the MySQL files. Ooops!

-Remove MySQL server completely. Please follow the steps here

-Install MySQL. Please follow the steps here

Sorry if this is common knowledge, but I thought I’d share it for non-tech savvy people who use Ubuntu and face this issue.
