MySQL vs MariaDB


Active member

So I've been reading around and I've noticed that MariaDB is generally suggested more than MySQL as a database server, I've Googled and I can't seem to find a clear answer to my question of what's the difference and why do people prefer MariaDB over MySQL.

Anyone feel like explaining?

Thanks! :)
This is more qualitative than quantitative, but the big thing in my book is that MariaDB tends to be better at automatically recovering from replication problems.
