WebAura Upgrades from MySQL to MariaDB

WebAura Upgrades from MySQL to MariaDB

The Down and Dirty

The original MySQL was created by a Finnish/Swedish company, MySQL AB, founded by David Axmark, Allan Larsson and Michael “Monty” Widenius. The first version of MySQL appeared in 1995. It was initially created for personal usage but in a few years evolved into a enterprise grade database and it became the worlds most popular open source relational database software – and it still is. In January 2008, Sun Microsystems bought MySQL for $1 billion. Soon after, Oracle acquired all of Sun Microsystems after getting approval from the European Commission in late 2009, which initially stopped the transaction due to concerns that such a merger would harm the database markets as MySQL was the main competitor of Oracle’s database product.  Out of distrust in Oracle stewardship of MySQL, the original developers of MySQL forked it and created MariaDB in 2009.

At WebAura, we migrated all of our shared hosting accounts as well as own databases from MySQL to MariaDB as a kick off to a fast and speedy 2017.
