According to the website MariaDB.org, MariaDB is “one of the most popular database servers in the world. It’s made by the original developers of MySQL and guaranteed to stay open source. Notable users include Wikipedia, WordPress.com and Google.”
In the past, I’ve installed MariaDB locally on my CentOS or Ubuntu servers, but didn’t go much further. Now, my ISP (IONOS) offers ability to create MariaDB Databases hosted within their cloud. Here goes creating, accessing and learning more about the system. There could be connections to Apache websites and Python programming. I’ll cross-reference to past posts I wrote, as needed.
I always start by first going to the source website to review documentation high-level. This can set in some overwhelm, so I remember the GTD maxim to focus just on “the Next Action”. One thing I notice, as of 20220116 is the version is 10.6.5. Within IONOS they were only saying version 10, so first thing after installing the database is to check the version.
