Thank you Joachim and DGGBCN, I solved with command sudo -u mysql mysqld

Thank you very much Joachim Fermstad

It seems it can’t initialize the InnoDB storage engine because it can’t allocate the 4GB buffer pool (innodb_buffer_pool_size parameter in my.cnf). <br>If you don’t have enough memory in the machine you probably need to either upgrade the machine or lower the limit.
