MySQL Server on Manjaro-MySQL Server is a powerful database server used my millions websites around the world. Additionally, many people and company now migrate their database to MySQL Server. I am working on a Gold exploration company and we use MySQL Server as our main database server for the geological data.
MySQL Server can be installed on most Operating Systems such as Windows and Linux. On this tutorial, I will show you how to install MySQL Server on Manjaro 16.10. Installing MySQl can be done through Terminal using pacman install command.
Steps to install MySQL Server on Manjaro 16.10
Open Terminal and type the following command
sudo pacman -S mysql
[dhani@dhani-manjaro ~]$ sudo pacman -S mysql
:: There are 2 providers available for mysql:
:: Repository extra
:: Repository community
Enter a number (default=1):
Type 1 to select mariadb package or simply press Enter.
looking for conflicting packages...
Packages (4) jemalloc-4.3.1-1 libmariadbclient-10.1.19-1
Total Download Size: 19.44 MiB
Total Installed Size: 172.45 MiB
:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n] y
Type Y to confirm the installation. Then pacman will download required files from the official repository.
When installation completed, now we need to start MySQL and perform initial configuration. Use this command below instead:
sudo mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql
Start Mariadb Service
sudo systemctl start mariadb
Secure Mariadb installation
[dhani@dhani-manjaro ~]$ mysql_secure_installation
NOTE: RUNNING ALL PARTS OF THIS SCRIPT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL MariaDB
SERVERS IN PRODUCTION USE! PLEASE READ EACH STEP CAREFULLY!
In order to log into MariaDB to secure it, we'll need the current
password for the root user. If you've just installed MariaDB, and
you haven't set the root password yet, the password will be blank,
so you should just press enter here.
Enter current password for root (enter for none):
OK, successfully used password, moving on...
Setting the root password ensures that nobody can log into the MariaDB
root user without the proper authorisation.
Set root password? [Y/n] y
Re-enter new password:
Password updated successfully!
Reloading privilege tables..
By default, a MariaDB installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MariaDB without having to have a user account created for
them. This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother. You should remove them before moving into a
Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y
Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'. This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.
Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] n
By default, MariaDB comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access. This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.
Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
- Dropping test database...
- Removing privileges on test database...
Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.
Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y
All done! If you've completed all of the above steps, your MariaDB
installation should now be secure.
Thanks for using MariaDB!
Usually, Mariadb root user is none (no pasword). You should change the root password for security reason.
