How To Check MySQL is Running or Not

Q. My manager gave me new Linux Server for setup. How can I check MySQL server is running on the Linux server ??

It’s quite easy to check the status of the MySQL server status. Here I am showing you 2 methods:
1. From script
2. mysqladmin utility

1. From Script

On CentOS 7, run the following script to check the MySQL is running or not.

On Ubuntu Server, run the below command.

2. Use mysqladmin utility

Another method to check, mysqladmin utility is used.

On CentOS 7,
