A running easyapache process was detected. Please wait for easyapache to finish before attempting to upgrade MySQL

I am just setting a new server up, and i upgraded apache first. Now i went to upgrade MySQL to 5.5, but when i am going in the interface, it says:

WARNING: A running easyapache process was detected. Please wait for easyapache to finish before attempting to upgrade MySQL.

If you are certain that the easyapache is no longer running, you may restart the MySQL upgrade by clicking the following button.
The “Ignore current upgrade button” is not working. What do we do?

 

What you can do, is to run:

ps aux | grep easyapache

If it doesn’t return any process running, then go delete the following file:
/usr/local/apache/AN_EASYAPACHE_BUILD_IS_CURRENTLY_RUNNING

Enjoy!
