I've my upgraded my system from Debian 8 to Debian 9.

MySQL Version on Debian 8 (before upgrade) - 5.5.58-0+deb8u1-log (Debian)

MariaDB version on Debian 9 (after upgrade): 10.1.26-MariaDB-0+deb9u1 Debian 9.1

Problem is, that when i add:

event_scheduler = on

To /etc/mysql/mariadb.conf.d/50-server.cnf and restart the mysql server, the event scheduler is still disabled according to following query:


| event_scheduler | OFF   |

Is there anything special about mariadb to explain why is it not starting?


Solved. I had custom global umask.. which results in wrong permissions on files inside /etc/mysql. Had to fix them manually and suddenly scheduler started working.
