'Command Not Found' during installation process

I am new to Linux and generally use Windows, but this service is only for Linux so perhaps someone help me figure out what I am doing wrong in this scenario.

I have followed the guide and instructions to installing the Percona XtraDB Cluster to the tee. However, I get hanged up when I get to Bootstrapping the first node. According to the documentation, it says to do this:

I input that information into my terminal and I just get: Command Not Found.

$ [root@pxc1 ~]# /etc/init.d/mysql bootstrap-pxc1
[root@pxc1: command not found

What am I doing wrong? I copied and pasted it so it can’t be a miss spelling. Googling the issue I didn’t come up with any results.

Hi Nightstorm;

What OS are you running? If you’re on CentOS 7 (or equivalent), you’ll need to use:

systemctl start mysql@bootstrap.service

I am running Ubuntu Xenial.

2018-02-09T14:08:18.764755Z 0 [ERROR] Aborting

I fixed the command not found issue, but now i’m running into a new issue. MYSQL does not run when i attempt to bootstrap my first node, instead I get this error.

Here is my config file:

# Template my.cnf for PXC
# Edit to your requirements.




Ip’s hidden for security reasons but are legit numbers.

Actually I am noticing that the IP’s in my error log are not the IP’s in my config file. I did put the old IP’s at first, following instructions carefully, but now I realized I needed to put the new IP’s. The config file is saved with correct permissions. I double checked my.cnf file and the new IP changes are there… but it seems to be attempting to constantly connect to old IP’s… why is this?

Edit: When I attempt to run the bootstrapping command I get this error:

The server quit without updating PID file (/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid).


What version of PXC are you running?

One way to check your config file settings is to use my_print_defaults, so for xenial you would run

my_print_defaults --defaults-file=/etc/mysql/my.cnf mysqld

This would let you verify that your settings aren’t being overwritten somewhere else in the config file.

I am using Percona 5.7

I found out the problem, which was I was installing all this on my local machine, RATHER than the server! So of course nothing worked as expected.

I now have followed the instructions (again), this time on my server. Everything ran smoothly until I got up to bootstrapping my first node. Here is the error log I got.

Edit: had to delete a few shutting down logs due to character size limit.

  1. Are you sure you are starting PXC. From the log it appears like you are starting MySQL server. PXC logs are way different with lot of additional information about the PXC wsrep plugin. Also, Percona product logs will tag SE as Percona XtraDB.
  2. PXC 5.7.21 is not yet released. Server that you are running is 5.7.21.
