Error 1067 in MariaDB on Windows

Posted on Sep 22, 2013

After you change the data directory path in MariaDB, you may see the following error, when you try to restart the DB service.

Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly

This is because MariaDB runs as Network Service who does not have read-write access to every directory. To fix the problem, you should either make the directory writable for Network Service or change the user to one that has read-write access to the directory.
