Understand the default MariaDB configuration
The grant tables define the initial MariaDB user accounts and their access privileges. The default configuration consists of:
- A privileged account with a username of root. The root user has remote access to the database.
- An anonymous user without remote access to the database server. This user can only connect from the local machine and it is only intended for testing.
- A test database only intended for testing.
Check our recommendations for a production server.
In order to see which MariaDB version are your machine running you can execute the following command:
$ mysqld --version
MariaDB configuration file
The MariaDB configuration file is located at /opt/bitnami/mariadb/my.cnf.
The MariaDB official documentation has more details about how to configure the MariaDB database.
On Unix, MariaDB clients can connect to the server in the local machine using an Unix socket file at /opt/bitnami/mariadb/tmp/mysql.sock.
The default port for MariaDB is 3306.
MariaDB Process Identification Number
The MariaDB .pid file allows other programs to find out the PID (Process Identification Number) of a running script. Find it at /opt/bitnami/mariadb/data/mysqld.pid.
MariaDB log file
The log-error file contains information indicating when MariaDB was started and stopped and also any critical errors that occur while the server is running. If MariaDB notices a table that needs to be automatically checked or repaired, it writes a message to the error log. Find it at /opt/bitnami/mariadb/data/mysqld.log.
