Hi Michael,

Issues arise when attempting to create a new database within Libreoffice.
When I test connecting to a database, I get the following error message:
SQL Status: 08S01
Communications link failure
The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. The
driver has not received any packets from the server.

As Robert has indicated, could you be clearer on what you mean by
"creating a new database within LibreOffice ?"

Are you:
(1) trying to create a new database schema from within a running LO
instance ? As Robert has mentioned, you can't actually do this, the DB
schema needs to be created from the msyql command line or an alternative
GUI tool (such as e.g. phpmyadmin) ;

(2) trying to connect to an existing mysql DB schema, and receiving the
error message you have indicated ?

The error message itself might be slightly misleading, as this is
usually displayed when you can not even connect to the mariadb/mysql

What does your /etc/mysql/my.cnf or /etc/my.cnf contain next to :
