To start a MySQL server on Linux, you can follow these steps:
- Open a terminal window on your Linux system.
- Verify that MySQL is installed by running the following command:
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
- 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.
- 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.
