OS: Ubuntu 16.04
LAMPP: XAMPP 5.6.23
I tried to install the MediaWiki Extension CirrusSearch, following the Instructions. Therefore I installed php via package manager (I know I should have used the php shipped with bitnami) and tried to run the command
sudo php extensions/CirrusSearch/maintenance/updateSearchIndexConfig.php
which did not succeed. MySQL is not running anymore and I think it came with the command above.
What I tried already
sudo /opt/lampp/ctlscript.sh start mysql
but there is no response at all and the command never finishs. So i try
where I can see that MySQL is stopped. If I try to execute there is no reaction, only this output in terminal:
/opt/lampp/lampp: line 148: printf: write error: Broken pipe
I found the suggestion to change the owner of the mysql data directory. But on my machine there is no folder data in that directory and there is no user mysql neither, which I checked using
cut -d: -f1 /etc/passwd | grep mysql
I was searching for a mysqld.log file, but could not find one on my machine.
Any idea how to repair this?
(Btw: I cannot start the normal manager)
