Thank you @jarland for your response. I’ll definitely try it!!

Hello friend!

I’m sorry for the trouble this is causing you. I’m afraid there isn’t much in that error to go on, but there is a path to find out more. These commands have the potential to reveal more information:

systemctl status mysql.service journalctl -xe

Generally I would run these and find an error that looks to be more specific, and then run it through Google while paying close attention to results from stackoverflow.com. You are, of course, welcome to share the output here as well. I cannot guarantee that I can take the output and turn it into steps to solve, but I’m happy to try. If I cannot, perhaps someone else here in the community can.

Kind Regards, Jarland
