I’m desperately trying to troubleshoot my “Error establishing a database connection” error since even after a restart, where the memory should be empty, my website is no longer loading.
Therefore, I’ve been playing around with the mysql error file and mysql settings. I have a lot of files to choose from inside of /etc/mysql. Yet my the biggest file and only file with actual config is inside of /mysql.conf.d/ and named “mysqld.cnf”.
The problem however is, that service mysqld start ends in "Failed to start mysqld.service: Unit mysqld.service not found.
Does that mean that my 1-click wordpress installation is using mysql instead of mysqld?
