I'm having some troubles setting MySql (mariadb running on CentOS7)
When I issue
show global variables where variable_name = 'max_allowed_packet';
The response is
| Variable_name | Value |
| max_allowed_packet | 1048576 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
Witch means that it is 1M. I need to leave permanently this value at 5M or bigger
I tried editing the file /etc/my.cnf by adding
So it remained like this.
# Disabling symbolic-links is recommended to prevent assorted security risks
# Settings user and group are ignored when systemd is used.
# If you need to run mysqld under a different user or group,
# customize your systemd unit file for mariadb according to the
# instructions in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Systemd
# include all files from the config directory
But after restarting the server it looks like the max_allowed_packet = 1048576
Any suggestion please?.
Thanks in advance.
I finally could solve this particular problem.
We are talking about a droplet in DigitalOcean. After the doplet creation I just followed a tutorial and issued a "yum install mariadb" (Or may be mariadb-server, not sure). It seemed to be ignoring all configuration in /etc/my.cnf so I tried a Fedora droplet. I was able to install MySql from an Oracle YUM repository. Everything was fine. But I will talk about a problem on Fedora in another question (Or may be submit a ticket).
What I did is to visit mariadb official site and following some instructions i arrived to this page. https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/#mirror=edatel&distro=CentOS&distro_release=centos7-amd64--centos7&version=10.0 So setting up the official mariadb resppository and then issuing "yum install mariaDB" seemed to fix the problem.
Thats all for now. Thank you all for reading.
