Mariadb does not start, no matter what I do. It always looks like:

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

I already uninstalled and reinstalled all mariadb packages, but it does not work.

How can I fix this?

  • Please copy and paste the terminal output instead! Was mysql installed previously? – George Udosen Jul 5 '17 at 18:21
  • Yes mysql was installed – Zoker Jul 5 '17 at 18:24
  • Did you completely remove it, I mean purge it? – George Udosen Jul 5 '17 at 18:28
  • Yes I followed this instruction: askubuntu.com/a/708822/672607 – Zoker Jul 5 '17 at 18:29
