MariaDB should be fine with the following caveat: at the moment.

As development diverges, things may change between the platforms, but as it stands they are broadly compatible for what we use it for in Textpattern.

Since we mopped up the version number comparison issues in 4.6/4.7 that broke due to MariaDB’s numbering scheme, and have done work in 4.8 to support MySQL 8, we’re in good shape.

Just gotta hope that PHP don’t deprecate mysqli or we’ll be forced to migrate to PDO, with all the baggage it brings.

Hi Stef
Would postmaster work on it?

I would expect so. It’s a plugin. But it does currently use direct SQL calls instead of our API safe_* calls so it’s not ideal. Could probably easily be changed, but I didn’t want to rock the boat given the outdated naure of thre code base, so I’ve left those calls in for now.

The smd plugin menagerie — for when you need one more gribble of power from Textpattern. Bleeding-edge code available on GitHub.

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

I’ve been shopping around frantically after the announcement and found Hostinger has a solid offer on cloud hosting anyone experienced with them ?
