  •  I think you are missing gcc ! 

    Also the upgrade path clearly states that is from 7.0 --> 7.1 --> 7.2 , you might of missed some libs in the process.


    Install gcc, this will also install the


    After this try to start the database.

     Also make sure all path variables are avaialbe and set.

  • Yea .Yor are correct . issue has been solved after installing it .
