MariaDB is a reliable, high performance and full-featured database server which aims to be an 'always Free, backward compatible, drop-in' replacement of the [[MySQL]] Server. It is distributed under the GPLv2 license.
Started as a fork of MySQL by Widenius (creator of both servers), MariaDB is a project developed by the open source community under the technocracy model. Monty Program Ab employs most of the original core MySQL developers, and is currently the main steward for the project.
MariaDB is kept up to date with the latest MySQL release from the same branch. A merge from the main MySQL branch is done for every new MySQL release or when there is some critical bugfix applied to the main branch.
The intent also being to maintain high fidelity with MySQL, ensuring a "drop-in" replacement capability with library binary equivalency and exacting matching with MySQL APIs and commands.
== Installation ==
Install the {{Pkg|mariadb}} package from the [[Official Repositories|community repository]].
If [[MySQL]] is already installed on the system, pacman has to remove {{Pkg|mysql}}, {{Pkg|mysql-clients}} and {{Pkg|libmysqlclient}} before installing {{Pkg|mariadb}}.
After installing, the mysql system tables should be installed for you automatically. If not, this should reinstall them:
# /usr/bin/mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql
{{Note| If you experience errors or you want more information about it, read the official [[http://kb.askmonty.org/v/installing-system-tables-mysql_install_db documentation]]}}
To start the mariadb daemon:
# systemctl start mysqld.service
To enable it on every boot:
# systemctl enable mysqld.service
== Configuration ==
It is '''highly recommended''' to secure the installation after starting the daemon, using the provided tool:
# mysql_secure_installation
If you are new to MySQL, please read the [[MySQL]] page on this wiki for additional information.
