11.0.1 MariaDB Limits

The MariaDB limits config file was erroneously put in /etc/security instead of /etc/security/limits.d. The fix is to simply move the file to the right directory. This issue primarily effects larger cluster setups but it’s possible for a single ViciBox Express setup to also have this issue.


There will be MariaDB logs statings that they cannot open a table, tmp file, can’t spawn process, limit reached, etc.

The Fix

  1. If not already, login as the root user to get to the # command prompt.

  2. Type in mv /etc/security/mysql.conf /etc/security/limits.d/mysql.conf and press ENTER

  3. When ready, type reboot and press ENTER to reboot and load new settings
