Installing on Ubuntu 18.04


I am inexperienced with Linux so I have tried several fresh installs with no luck following this tutorial:

Each time I get stuck at the same part with no luck on any google searches of my errors. When I run:

sudo systemctl status mariadb

I get:

/usr/bin/mysql_upgrade: the '--basedir' option is always ignored Looking for 'mysql' as: /usr/bin/mysql Looking for 'mysqlcheck' as: /usr/bin/mysqlcheck Version check failed. Got the following error when calling the 'mysql' command ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: FATAL ERROR: Upgrade failed

Also when I run:

sudo mysql -u root -p

I get:

mysql: unknown variable 'pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/'

What am I missing?

Any help would be much appreciated!


Currently where are you on the install? I’ve installed multiple times with no issues… i know that you are installing on Ubuntu 18.04 but what are your systems specifications? Also did you run mysql_secure_installation? To setup the MySQL server?

My system specs are:
Xeon W3530, 4GB RAM, Nvidia NV98

I no longer have the error Upgrade Failed. I already ran mysql_secure_installation and I am about to log into MariaDB using sudo mysql -u root -p
