Changing service account and ports of mysql installed using percona

Hi Team,
Firstly Wanted to say it is one of the best communities I have seen for any product, thanks a lot for answering queries quickly.
We installed xtradb cluster 8.0.28 using rpms and wanted to change mysql service account which is mysql and having permission /usr/lib/mysql dir/subdir and files. We tried to change using mysql doc and tried following steps.

  1. Stop mysqld service
  2. chown -R new_user:new_user /var/lib/mysql
  3. added in my.cnf “user=new_user”
  4. started the services

But we got error while starting the service and have to roll-back.

Can you please guide how to change service account to new account.

Also wanted to know if we build from Source using “…/build-ps/./ ./pxc-build” will this command also creates RPMs?

Also along with changing user(mysql) how to change all 4 ports used by percona xtradb cluster from default as mentioned below to some other ports.

Thanks in advance

Check the user in systemctl cat mysqld.service as well. Also, look at mysql’s error log and see what other issues might be visible.


@matthewb, Thanks a lot, changing user and group in /etc/systemd/system/mysqld.service fixed the issue and was able to start mysqld service but now unable to bootstrap first node, I have added more details regarding this in new post link below, can you please suggest.
