Mysql fail to load

This is the third time I am facing this error. I have downloaded the latest VM and have been using on virtual box with the normal specs (but I increase the RAM to 2 GB)

Everything I have turned off the VM normally (sudo shutdown ) but thats the 3rd time my DB has crashed. I also have an old VM (version 9 of erpnext) and it never faces this issue.

Now I see Internal Server Error when I open in browser. Im very very worried as I have to deploy that in my environment. And if this fails, when I start adding my data, ill be doomed.

please help :frowning:

ok a similar report here Failed to start MariaDB 10.2.13 database server - #8 by clarkej

To troubleshoot and diagnose the problem please check the logs for the nature of the error.

edit: Possibly a database config issue - these are suspicious?


Fortunately this was a test VM, I have deleted the new VMs.

I had an old VM, which was using ubuntu 14, i updated ERPnext on that. Everything is working fine. I will try and make this error appear again and then post back.

Many thanks for this.
