MariaDB: Aria engine is not enabled or did not start. The Aria engine must be enabled to continue as mysqld was configured with --with-aria-tmp-tablesLast Modified: Jan 11, 2018, 4:42 pm
If MariaDB (mysqld) isn't starting, and you're getting this error:

Aria engine is not enabled or did not start. The Aria engine must be enabled to continue as mysqld was configured with --with-aria-tmp-tables

  1. first make a full backup of your /var/lib/mysql folder.
  2. Next try renaming the aria_log_control to something else, eg:

    cd /var/lib/mysql
    mv aria_log_control aria_log_control.moved

  3. Then try to restart mysqld

    service mysqld



It is safe to delete this file, but only if MariaDB is not running:
