Helo @sean , I hope you are very well
I would like to comment you that the MariaDB server has experienced an unexpected outage. It has been operational for almost a couple of years without any incidents, but now we are facing this issue.
$ mysqladmin -P 3333 -S $HOME/apps/maria/var/mysql.sock status
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local server through socket '/home/xxxx/apps/maria/var/mysql.sock' (111)'
Check that mariadbd is running and that the socket: '/home/xxx/apps/maria/var/mysql.sock' exists!
Our main goal is to bring the server back up without risking the loss of data stored in the database. what can I do for resolving this issue safely and effectively?
I can assure you that the file that mentions the error exists
srwxrwxrwx. 1 user user 0 Oct 28 2022 mysql.sock
I appreciate your attention and assistance.
