To start a MySQL server on Linux, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window on your Linux system.
  2. Verify that MySQL is installed by running the following command: mysql --version If MySQL is not installed, you can install it using the package manager for your Linux distribution. For example, on Ubuntu, you can use the following command to install MySQL: sudo apt-get install mysql-server
  3. Once MySQL is installed, you can start the server by running the following command: sudo systemctl start mysql Note: On some Linux distributions, the MySQL service may be named differently, such as mysqld or mariadb. Please refer to the documentation of your Linux distribution for the correct command to start the MySQL service.
  4. To check if the MySQL server has started successfully, you can run the following command: sudo systemctl status mysql If the server has started successfully, you should see a status message indicating that the service is active and running.


Congratulations! You have now started a MySQL server on your Linux system.

Please note that the commands provided in the above steps assume you are using a Linux distribution that uses systemctl as the service manager, such as Ubuntu. If you are using a different Linux distribution that uses a different service manager, such as SysVinit or Upstart, the commands may vary.


If you're using a different distribution or have a different configuration, consider checking the specific documentation for that distribution or MySQL version to get the correct command syntax for starting the MySQL server.
