Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

bici, Thanks so much for pointing me to that forum thread. I see that they are using MariaDB, which I know that it is unofficially supported by txp, but old dogs are hard to change. I feel more comfortable with Mysql.

?? i saw no issue with my TxP and EE sites under MariaDB

“MariaDB: 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.”

But i cede to more knowledgeable people on this issue.

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

Like bici, I’ve been using MariaDB for a long time. I did not need to do anything at all different from MySQL. It’s MySQL with knobs on.

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

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 Could probably easily be changed, but I didn’t want to rock the boat given the outdated naure of thre code base, so I’ve left those calls in for now.

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 ?

Bumping an old thread to announce that we’ve moved our project domains from GoDaddy to Porkbun.
