Initial Server Setup

Hi everyone,

I want to install Openlitespeed on Ubuntu 18.04 with MySQL (not MariaDB). I tried to find some information on this but without success. It seems like Openlitespeed work only with MariaDB. The reason for this is I have some php app which have some compatibility issues whith MariaDB and require MySQL to work normally. To be clean I mean on ‘mysql-server’ package on Ubuntu and 'php-mysql’ extension.

Any help is appreciated
