100% compatible. MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for MySQL

Reason: OpenCart version 3+ ;D

Thanks!

As far as I understand it, MariaDB is not just a "drop-in replacement" for MySQL, it is the new version of MySQL.

Hi Fido-x,
It is. MariaDB is forked from the original MySQL. The original devs went their own way after Oracle bought MySQL.
So both products exist next to each other.

Okay. Thanks for the clarification. I guess Oracle couldn't handle the competition.

Hi All,

Thanks the post but anyone is using mariadb on Opencart as daily production? At least OC not state on their requirement, also most extension if involve database still stick on MySQL terms.

I have all OC versions from 1.5.6 up to 2.3 running on MariaDB on several servers!
I feel its slightly faster than MySQL 5.5 at least.

But since there is no MariaDB Driver in OC 1.5.6, it would be interesting to know,
how you connect this, for someone, always looking for some more peaks ! :D

Oh, so, it needs to be set on the Server only. Well, I use mysqli already, so, I'll have a look on this, whenever
I got my too many full Shop test servers cleaned out. :o
Thanks a lot!

MariaDB surpasses MySQL as a leader in open source database solutions by delivering enterprise-level high availability, scalability and security.
Opencart will run fine on that platform. MariaDB is a little faster than MySQL, so it makes online store run quick. I did set up OpenCart on my nas server with maria db, but processor and memory is limited. Performance is greatly affected by image size, template design and number of options.
