Start MySQL service

To start MySQL service on a UNIX-alike system or on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), simply run the following command:

sudo service mysql start

The output looks like the following:

 * Starting MySQL database server mysqld                                                                                No directory, logging in with HOME=/
                                                                                                             [ OK ]

Run the following command to check service status:

$ sudo service mysql status
