MariaDB on Debian 10 - Step by step process to install it ?

This article will guide you on the different methods to conveniently install and start the MariaDB service on a Debian 10 system. Also, we dealt with how to easily remove MariaDB from your Debian 10 system. 

In MariaDB replication is faster whereas in MySQL replication is slower. 

MariaDB is Open Source whereas MySQL uses some proprietary code in its Enterprise Edition. 

MariaDB doesn't support Data Masking and Dynamic column while MySQL supports it. Comparatively MariaDB is faster than MySQL.

Since MariaDB is a fork of MySQL, the database structure and indexes of MariaDB are the same as #MySQL. 

This allows you to switch from MySQL to MariaDB without having to alter your applications since the data and data structures will not need to change. Data and table definition files are compatible.


To install #MariaDB on #Debian , follow these steps:

1. First update the apt packages index by typing: sudo apt update.

2. Once the packages list is updated, install MariaDB by running the following command: sudo apt install mariadb-server.

3. The MariaDB service will start automatically.
