Repost : How to Install MariaDB in Ubuntu

MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database management system, the impetus being the community maintenance of its free status under the GNU GPL.

MariaDB is another alternative that derive from mysql..In this case we would like to test and share the guide on how to install MariaDB

  1. First of all open terminal and type thissudo apt-get install python-software-properties

I recommend you to use MariaDB version 10.0.4 Alpha because when im installed it i’ve got no errors compare with 5.5 version.

Update : logon to for latest version

2: Put this commands in terminal

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 0xcbcb082a1bb943db

sudo add-apt-repository 'deb quantal main'

If you’re using other version please change the “quantal” to your ubuntu version codename

eg : 13.10 saucy
     13.04 raring
     12.10 quantal (im using this version)
     12.04 precise`

3: Type in this commands

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

4: after finished installed mariadb you need to run this

sudo mysql_install_db
sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

If have problem consider look at the end of this post for solution

5: You’re done!!

Problems solving

In step 3 if you get problem, like unmet dependencies, Go to /etc/apt/preferences.d then create new file called “mariadb” Then,Consider to put the below code in the mariadb file that you just created

Package: *
Pin: origin <mirror-domain>
Pin-Priority: 1000

In step 4 you may get 2 errors

  1. first occur when you run sudo mysql_install_db Solution : open another terminal and do this killall mysqld2.second eror may occur when you running sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installationcommand

Solution :

try doing this

cd /etc/init.d and try run ./mysqld start
if ./mysqld doesnt exists use ./mysql start as in my case

That’s All Thank you for reading.
