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
- First of all open terminal and type this
sudo 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 http://mariadb.org for latest version
2: Put this commands in terminal
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xcbcb082a1bb943db
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://download.nus.edu.sg/mirror/mariadb/repo/10.0/ubuntu quantal main'
If you’re using other version please change the “quantal” to your ubuntu version codename
eg : 13.10 saucy
12.10 quantal (im using this version)
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
If have problem consider look at the end of this post for solution
5: You’re done!!
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
Pin: origin <mirror-domain>
In step 4 you may get 2 errors
- first occur when you run
sudo mysql_install_db Solution : open another terminal and do this
2.second eror may occur when you running
try doing this
cd /etc/init.d and try run ./mysqld start
