How to dump a MariaDB while mariadb.service is stopped, to move the database to a different server?
A MariaDB server is installed on a Linux server. The MariaDB service is currently stopped, so no client can connect to it. How to create a SQL-dump of all databases without starting the service?
The plan was to disable the MariaDB service so that no new writes to the database can be made (that have a risk of not being included in the dump).
Why: The database should be moved to a different server and isn't needed on the original server anymore after moving is done.
