Thread: MariaDB with PHPMyAdmin

    Default MariaDB with PHPMyAdmin

    Hi everyone. I am waiting for 11.3 to redo a couple LAMP servers I plan to put to work. In the mean time I have been doing some research on alternatives to MySQL. MariaDB seems like a viable alternative, but still too young to know how long it will stick around. I'd like to give it a try regardless but was wondering if anyone has used it with PHPMyAdmin OR has even just tried it out.

    Any thoughts on MariaDB would also be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Rob

    Monty claims that MariaDB is a full drop in replacement for MySQL. As advertised it *should* work with PHPMyAdmin. And yes, I guess it will stay for quite a while - at least until Monty sells it to one of the BIG companies ...

    Yeah, if MariaDB is a workalike for MySQL in operation, then it should also be a workalike as far as phpMyAdmin is concerned, which merely issues the same command set as a user with fantastic memory for the whole MySQL manual would anyway.

    It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
    from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

    Just saw the announcement that 11.3 will come with a packaged recent version of MariaDB. This is another good reason to try it.

    Hi,

    I find MariDB very interesting, it's from the one of the founders of MySQL. Especially the Maria storage engine, which is also part of mysql 6, looks like an interesting replacement for MyISAM. And the Percona XtraDB engine (drop in replacement for InnoDB) looks also interesting. because It seems that XtraDB scales better http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/...-fast-storage/

    Maybe MariDB could be very interesting in the near future since Oracle bought MySQL and you never know what their plans are

    Have a lot of fun
