MariaDB upgrade has been performed recently on the server with SELinux enabled
MariaDB bug #MDEV-24941: SElinux incorrect label for server socket.
The SELinux context for the MariaDB socket file
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock has been lost because of the above because of upgrade to MariaDB version affected by the bug.
To workaround the problem until the bug is resolved, set up a scheduled task which frequently restores SELinux context on MariaDB mysql.sock file
Navigate to Tools & Settings > Scheduled Tasks (Cron jobs) and click Add Task
Set up the new scheduled the task with the following values:
- Run a command
- Command: /usr/sbin/restorecon -v /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
- Run: Cron-style: * * * * *
- System user: root
- Description: Restore MariaDB socket SELinux MDEV-24941:
- Notify: Do not notify
The scheduled task will execute restorecon command to temporarily resolve the issue. It will run automatically once in a minute.
The following alternative workarounds are also available:
