I am trying to set up MariaDB in a way that it automatically recovers — basically restarts, from a crash.
Based on this article — scroll down to Auto-starting Services with systemd, I opened
/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/mariadb.service file but there were nothing like this as the article explains:
[Service] ... ... Restart=always ...
So I added the
[Service] section and the
Restart=always underneath, restarted the service and killed the process to see if it will start automatically, but it didn’t.
I was wondering if I’m editing the wrong file or if there are other ways of achieving the same thing. Server is a remote machine running CentOS 7.
After making changes to systemd units, you need to run
systemctl daemon-reload for those changes to have effect.
