I already finished the installation shown in Maria’s db site. sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 0xcbcb082a1bb943db sudo add-apt-repository ‘deb wheezy main’ Once the key is imported and the repository added you can install MariaDB with:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mariadb-server

… I was looking instructions on how to proceed the post-installation… for example, creating the first database and permissions… I found some info in mysql site, but I’m not sure if applies… Does mariadb is called with “mysql” command or “mariadb”

My vps is running debian 7 64 bits
