Hey All, I've been running in circles because of a particular step which i have successfully reproduced every time and when undone, things resumed working. The step in question is A little bit of background, I'm running a freshly spun Deb Stretch on DO droplet. After adding the limit increase file, MariaDB refuses to start. Upon deleting the file, MYSQL can be started. I copied and pasted the texts and configs and left almost nothing to manual typing and yet this happens. Any ideas why? Perhaps Maria updated something which prevents the limit file from being added? -AOS.
