I'm running MySQL on ubuntu 14.04 and it works great.
For development and testing before switching between the two I want to install a separate Mariadb server.
I followed this (old) tutorial: Installing MariaDB Alongside MySQL
Everything was done carefully with a 10.0.21 compiled binaries until I try to start the mariadb:
# /etc/init.d/mariadb start
Instead of printing
[ OK ] it prints
.*. I went to the error log in the data folder and found two types of errors depending on the installed mysql server:
- If mysql was running ->
mysql_safe A mysqld process already exists.
- I mysql was not running ->
File './mysql-bin.index' not found (Errorcode: 13 Permission denied)
I think the Mariadb is trying to use the wrong pid file and I have no clue how to fix that - Any Ideas?
