    I haven't used it personally, but from what I read there should not be any issues using MariaDB instead of MySQL.

    MariaDB have great features over MySQL and supported by MySQL original developers. (Google uses it for its own databases and also wikipedia etc.)

    I would be happy if amember developers test and verify amember on MariaDB beside MySQL.

    PS: amember is not the sole database driven application on our servers. Standard/free MySQL is enough to run amember but we have more web apps that need multiple threads etc. to run them smoothly. Knowing that amember is OK with MariaDB will help us to upgrade our MySQL databases to MariaDB on our servers.

    Theoretically amember should work on MariaDB as you point.
    I have one amember licence and it is live with 7000 members, I can't take risk.
    MariaDB is a free database, why don't you test amember on MariaDB and verify that it is working, I mean formally.

    Hi again,

    I have upgraded to MariaDB 10.0.20 for my website at https://my.PandaBot.Net and it works fine. Just FYI.
