I hope I am putting this question in the correct section of the forum.
I was recently reading an article from the Linux Journal which mentions MariaDB.
Before I go on,I must explain that MariaDB is an open source replacement for MySQL. According to their download site, which I just visited today, I quote:
“To provide a community developed, stable, and always Free branch of MySQL that is, on the user level, compatible with the main version. We strive for total interoperability with both our own, and our upstream, communities.
MariaDB is kept up to date with the latest MySQL release from the same branch. For example MariaDB 5.1.47 is up to date with MySQL 5.1.47, and so on.”
My question is: has anyone had any success in trying to use this with BlenderPeople 0.8 in place of MySQL? To be able to do this would be advantageous because there would be an open-source and free alternative to MySQL.
Currently, I am trying to run BlenderPeople using this setup. In the event that I succeed, I will be sure to let everyone know. However, if someone has already done this, please let me know.
