Question

MariaDB

  • Posted September 22, 2013

Hi,

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 keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xcbcb082a1bb943db sudo add-apt-repository ‘deb http://mirror.jmu.edu/pub/mariadb/repo/10.0/debian 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

Thanks

MariaDB is a drop-in MySQL replacement. You don’t need to change anything in your code, commands, scripts, etc. <br> <br>Once you replace the Oracle mysql binary with the MariaDB mysql binary (i.e. install mariadb-server) you’re good to go.

I connected to mysql using <br>mysql -h localhost -u root -p <br>I see the default databases (three of them) <br>I think I’m ready to start creating user and databases. <br> <br>
