mysql-server debconf Variables

The purpose of this article is to list the variables that are available to set when installing mysql-server on Ubuntu Linux. You can use the debconf-get-selections command to list debconf variables for any installed package on Ubuntu but the debconf variables are most useful before a package is installed so I constantly find myself having to login to another Ubuntu server where the package is already installed to get these variables. Now I can just look on QD.
