MySQL Error - Upgrading MySQL from 5.5 to 7 did not work.

Currently installed: 10.2.18-MariaDB

Upgrading MySQL from 5.5 to 7 did not work.


Upgrading MySQL from 7 to 10.2.18-MariaDB did not work.

MySQL seems unresponsive to start, or take backups in SSH. I am unsure how to successfully reinstall MySQL while keeping 60 cPanel WordPress websites live.

# service mysql status

ERROR! MariaDB is not running, but lock file (/var/lock/subsys/mysql) exists

# rm /var/lock/subsys/mysql --force

# service mysql status

ERROR! MariaDB is not running

# systemctl start mariadb

bash: systemctl: command not found

I am lost.
