MySQL and MariaDB

  • Mike O’Leary


MySQL is a commonly used open source relational database that is used in conjunction with web applications such as Wordpress, Joomla, and Zencart. The company that developed MySQL was acquired by Oracle, and many of the original developers of MySQL became concerned for the future licensing of MySQL. They created a fork of MySQL, named MariaDB, which serves as a replacement for the same version of MySQL.
