XAMPP 7.0.9 MariaDB question

Postby SinisaPerovic » 28. October 2016 11:00

Hi,

This is my first encounter with MariaDB and one thing is freaking me out.

I have installed XAMPP 7.0.9 that comes with MariaDB on my Elementay OS Loki. However, the when I start the service from CLI and/or use GUI manager and/or use phpMyAdmin all I can see that I'm running MySQL service. In fact the only place mentioning MariaDB is "What's included?" popup link on XAMPP download page.

I understand that MariaDB is drop-in replacement for MySQL but WTF? How can one see if he's having MariaDB or MySQL installed?

Thank you for the help.

Cheers.

Its so badly simple - either start (for example) /opt/lampp/bin/mysql (the Shell SQL Interpreter) and watch the prompt.

Or, for a more detailed information, simply start http://localhost/phpmyadmin and watch the Database Server Information (a box on the upper right side). My phpmyadmin shows this for example:

Code: Select all
Server: Localhost via UNIX socket
Server-Typ: MariaDB
Server-Version: 10.1.16-MariaDB - Source distribution
Protokoll-Version: 10
Benutzer: root@localhost
Server-Zeichensatz: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)


Is that really so WTF difficult??

Thank you @Nobbie for your time and effort as I hope you can see why running mysql shell to see that it is not mysql shell somewhat confusing.
However, please take your bitchy pills if you want to communicate with me again.

Cheers.

No, definately not, as i simply "doublicated" your very bitchy "WTF" pill. Why "WTF"?? Its your very first posting and its already embarrassing. Not a good start. Please take your bitchy pills, if you want to contact the forum again.
