How to stop and start MariaDB on Linux

28 October,2020 by Rambler

Question: How can I stop ,start and check status for MariaDB on Linux?

Answer: The commands will depend on whether you're using an older system with system V init or with systemd . I'll present both and decide depending on your server setup

--using system V init (assuming you're calling "mariadb") 

service mariadb status

service mariadb start

service mariadb stop 

service mariadb restart

--using systemd

systemctl status mariadb

systemctl start mariadb

systemctl stop mariadb


For more MariaDB commands use MariaDB Cheatsheet
