Failed to start database (mariadb.service)


Hi,

I have a problem with maiadb.service and i am unable to start Mysql server. When I try to run it, I get the following error:

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mariadb.service
Job for mariadb.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status mariadb.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

The "systemctl status mariadb.service" returns me:

mariadb.service - MariaDB database server
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/mariadb.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2019-08-25 15:19:23 CEST; 2min 52s ago

Aug 25 15:19:23 699.ablak.arnes.si systemd[1]: mariadb.service failed.

I tried to reinstal mariadb with following comand:

service mariadb stop
yum remove mariadb-server
cd /var/lib && rm -rfv mysql
yum -y install mariadb-server

But i couldnt remove it.

[root@699 lib]# service mariadb stop
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl stop mariadb.service
[root@699 lib]# yum remove mariadb-server

Your transaction was saved, rerun it with:
yum load-transaction /tmp/yum_save_tx.2019-08-25.15-25.YpBWA4.yumtx

Thank you for your answers.

It looks like you may have pressed enter instead of 'Y'. Can you try to remove it again, but ensure you press 'Y'? Or if you did press 'y' earlier but got an error, can you post the error you got?

When the server doesn't start, you may have information about the failure in the log files. They should be under /var/log/mysql.
