MariaDB suuport
« on: June 21, 2016, 08:50:33 am »
Hi All

After playing with MariaDB for several hours and is so similar to MySql.

Did all my steps to install MariaDB, downloaded and ODBC Driver 2.0.11 win 32, run the scrips at the MariaDB Server to create empty EA Tables.
All OK, have connection to the DB Server.

When I did the last step:
Project | Data Management | Project Transfer, I get an error message:

"The selected target database driver is not supported by EA"

I see that MariaDB is not supported. But looking at the similarity of MySQL and MariaDB I though it would do the transfer.

Any help can be appreciated.
Thanks
Best regards

Jose Zouain

As you are aware, MariaDB is not officially supported, but we have heard anecdotally of instances where it seems to be working as long as you use the appropriate ODBC driver.

AFAIK - You will need to use the MySQL ODBC driver and it will only work as long as MariaDB maintains its compatibility with MySQL.

The published of MariaDB is the same person that once wrote MySQL. Maria and My are both his daughters (real persons AND software; see Personal Life).
