What distro are you running?  If it uses systemd, then I am surprised
the /etc/init.d/ commands actually work.  On a systemd based distro,
that command should be:

systemctl start mariadb

The mariadb.service file normally provides aliases so that "systemctl
start mysql" and "systemctl start mysqld" also work.
