/etc/mysql/my.cnf:plugin_load = server_audit          = server_audit.so

I'm afraid not. The line above works just fine to start the server and load 
the plugin, without any errors.

I'll remove the whitespaces from the above line in the configuration file. If 
this is the solution then I'm happy with it!

If you want to further investigate why my server starts although it shouldn't, 
I'm happy to assist.

Thanks Faustin for your support!

Kind regards
