First of all open terminal and type this
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
I recommend you to use MariaDB version 10.0.4 Alpha because when im installed it i've got no errors compare with 5.5 version.
2: Put this commands in terminal
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xcbcb082a1bb943db
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://download.nus.edu.sg/mirror/mariadb/repo/10.0/ubuntu quantal main'
If you're using other version please change the "quantal" to your ubuntu version codename
eg : 13.10 saucy 13.04 raring 12.10 quantal (im using this version) 12.04 precise`
3: Type in this commands
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mariadb-server
4: after finished installed mariadb you need to run this
sudo mysql_install_db sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation
If have problem consider look at the end of this post for solution
5: You're done!!
In step 3 if you get problem, like unmet dependencies,
/etc/apt/preferences.d then create new file called "mariadb"
Then,Consider to put the below code in the mariadb file that you just created
Package: * Pin: origin <mirror-domain> Pin-Priority: 1000
In step 4 you may get 2 errors
first occur when you run
sudo mysql_install_dbSolution : open another terminal and do this
2.second eror may occur when you running
try doing this
cd /etc/init.d and try run ./mysqld start if ./mysqld doesnt exists use ./mysql start as in my case
That's All Thank you for reading.
