Problem with SMF recognizing MariaDB version 10
« on: February 13, 2019, 04:56:44 PM »
HI All;
I am having a problem with SMF recognizing my database. I am using MariaDB. I am doing this on my computer. I am using Apache 2.4 and PHP 7.

What is the problem exactly? Do you get some error?
Also, note that while MariaDB 10 should be compatible to MySQL 5.6, and should work with SMF - officially MariaDB is not a supported yet.

 Happily running multiple SMF 2.0 installations.

Your database must be on port 3306.

forum software doesn't find MariaDB
« Reply #3 on: February 14, 2019, 09:56:07 PM »
HI,
I have installed the software on my computer to test it out. I have Apache 2.4 and PHP 7 installed. But the forum software cannot find the database software. I am using Windows 10. The database software and PHP are installed under C:\
Any ideas would be appreciated.

I’d stat with simpler matters, what exactly is the message you get? How did you install Apache, PHP and MariaDB? (If you did all three separately, now may be a time to uninstall and use something like XAMPP where it will all be configured for you)
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

It is ported to the default port 3306.
MariaDB uses MySQL so I don't think it should make much of a difference.
I couldn't find my original post so I did another one.
I didn't see any errors.
I installed Apache and PHP with .zip files.
 I also ran  phpinfo();.

How, exactly, did you install PHP? It sounds like you didn’t do the complex manual configuration steps to enable different libraries that it needs.

I strongly suggest NOT doing that and using one of the ready made installers.
