MariaDB (LAB 18.1)


While following the steps in the lab 18.1 at step 11 when I do
mysql -u student -p test
I get
ERROR 1049 (42000): Unknown database 'test'


| Databases |
| information_schema |
| mysql |
| performance_schema |

So, it seems like I don't have a 'test' database

I double checked, I opted for leaving the test database while doing mysql_secure_installation

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] n
 ... skipping.

My system is ubuntu server 20.04.

    Tried also on CentOS 8 VM, no test database either

    Yes, the instructions specifically state to retain the test database. Do not delete it.

    Thank you for the input.
