In the latest stable version of Debian, if you ask to install mysql-server, you now get installed mariadb automatically, with no (evident) way of installing Oracle’s MySQL. Any major version upgrade has to be done carefully (not only for MariaDB, but also for MySQL and Postgres), and I bet that a MySQL 5.5 to MariaDB 10.1 will cause a huge confusion. Not only it will fail user expectations, I think this will cause large issues now that MariaDB has chosen to become a “hard” fork, and become incompatible in many ways with MySQL. Not only the server upgrade will cause user struggle, the connector is …[Read more]
The Debian project has today announced their 9th release, code named “Stretch”. This is a big milestone for MariaDB, because the release team decided to ship and support only one MySQL variant in this release, and MariaDB was chosen over MySQL. This is prominently mentioned in the press release about Debian 9 and more information […]
The post Debian 9 released with MariaDB as the only MySQL variant appeared first on MariaDB.org.

If you want to keep up with the newest MySQL developer milestones I have news for you: there is no upgrade available for milestone versions. The way to go is to remove old version and install new one, according to their website:
Upgrades between milestone releases (or from a milestone release to a GA release) are not supported. For example, upgrading from 8.0.0 to 8.0.1 is not supported, as neither are GA status releases.
So if you, like me, had the 8.0.0 version and want to test the 8.0.1 (alhtough 8.0.3 milestone is already in development) …[Read more]
Percona XtraBackup enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries, making it ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Offered free as an open source solution, Percona …[Read more]
In this article, I will show you how to configure a MySQL database cluster with three nodes in a multi-master replication. Multi-master replication allows writing of records in each node, so if a node will fail, we can work on the other as if nothing happened. This tutorial describes how to install and configure three Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes on Debian 8 servers, we will be using the packages from the Percona repositories.
This tutorial explains how to install ISPConfig 3 latest development version using a Debian stretch repository with its respective Debian packages. The objective of this tutorial is more for experimental and testing purposes than for productive environments.
The MariaDB Server original goals were to be a drop-in replacement. In fact this is how its described (“It is an enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL”). We all know that its becoming increasingly hard for that line to be used these days.
Anyhow in March 2016, Debian’s release team has made the decision that going forward, MariaDB Server is what people using …[Read more]
Some of the users might have already noticed following warning on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus):
Signature by key 430BDF5C56E7C94E848EE60C1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A uses
weak digest algorithm (SHA1)
.deb packages are signed with a key that
uses an algorithm now considered weak. Starting with
the next release, Debian and Ubuntu
packages are signed with a new key that uses the much
stronger SHA-512 algorithm. All future package release will also
contain the new algorithm.
You’ll need to do one of the …[Read more]
This tutorial describes the installation of a clustered web, email, database and DNS server to be used for redundancy, high availability and load balancing on Debian 8 with the ISPConfig 3 control panel. MySQL Master/Master replication will be used to replicate the MySQL client databases between the servers, Unison will be used to Sync the /var/www (websites) and the Mails will be synced with Dovecot.
