XF 1.4 MariaDB 10


Active member
Hi All

I am moving to a new dedicated server but I found out it comes with MariaDB not Mysql.

Whats the difference between MariaDB and MySql in terms of:
1. backup and restore command lines
2. optimization
3. my.cnf file settings

is the same exactly and I can just copy/paste my.cnf content of mysql to matiadb? ( both servers almost the same hardware)

Does it worth it to move from MySql to MariaDB?
If you don't have to have a cPanel setup, then I'd recommend installing CentOS on your server and using @eva2000's CentMin install. It will install nginx (high performance HTTP server), mariaDB, your PHP processor and PostFix for you. Setting the domains up is very easy with it.

More optimized out the box


so Cpanel Updated today and they suggest moving to MariaDB, now I have Percona Server installed, Installed that manually. so I'm not sure if cpanel will upgrade it properly though. I don't want my data being corrupted. and is MariaDB any better then Persona Server??

I would only upgrade if MariaDB had higher speed as in faster requests, better performance anything to help improve overall site speed and load times...

or even when updating/installing add-ones as I know rebuilding templates is all SQL queries and wish there was something to improve overall query speed..
