Share It!

MariaDB is a drop-in replacement for MySQL. It is easy to install, offers many speed and performance improvements, and is easy to integrate into most MySQL deployments. MariaDB offers more storage engines than MySQL, including Cassandra (NoSQL), XtraDB (drop-in replacement for InnoDB), and OQGRAPH.


Step #1: Add the MariaDB Repository

Here are the commands to run to install MariaDB on your Ubuntu system:

# sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

We’ll import the MariaDB public key used by the package management system:

# sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 0xcbcb082a1bb943db

Then we’ll add the MariaDB repository:

# sudo add-apt-repository 'deb trusty main'

# sudo apt-get update

Step #2: Install MariaDB

Next, run the following command to install mariadb server.

# sudo apt-get install mariadb-server

While installation on screen you can see, it is asking for setting MariaDB root password.


Step #3: Configure and Secure MariaDB for Use

When the installation is complete, run the following command to secure your installation:

# /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

Step #4: Verify MariaDB Installation

You can check the version of the MariaDB installation with the following command:

# mysql -V
mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.0.21-MariaDB, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.2


# mysql -u root -p
Welcome to the MariaDB monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
