Specifying Permissions for Schema (Data) Directories and Tables
Default File Permissions
By default MariaDB uses the following permissions for files and directories:
|Object Type||Default Mode||Default Permissions|
Configuring File Permissions with Environment Variables
You can configure MariaDB to use different permissions for files and directories by setting the following environment variables before you start the server:
|Object Type||Environment Variable|
In other words, if you would run the following in a shell:
export UMASK=0640 export UMASK_DIR=0750
These environment variables do not set the umask. They set the default file system permissions. See MDEV-23058 for more information.
Configuring File Permissions with systemd
If your server is started by
systemd, then there is a specific way to configure the umask. See Systemd: Configuring the umask for more information.
