https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=267835 Bug ID: 267835 Summary: databases/mariadb106-server non standard location of socket breaks connection from PHP Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: email@example.com Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org Flags: maintainer-feedback?(email@example.com) Assignee: firstname.lastname@example.org We upgraded some of our machines from MariaDB 10.3 to 10.6 and then realized that all web sites are broken, cannot connect to database, because MariaDB newer than 10.3 changed location of socket mysql.sock. PHP (and some other apps) does not use settings from my.cnf (which changed location a breaks the setup as well). These applications and PHP must be manually reconfigured to be able to connect to database server again. Something that works for 20+ years is broken now. If MariaDB was meant as drop-in replacement for MySQL then it is no longer the case. It diverged from default MySQL install too much. Now we have MySQL and MariaDB in many versions in the ports tree but they are not interchangeable and dependent ports like PHP (again many versions) cannot be built to work for all MySQL + MariaDB versions. I thing it will be much better to have things like config files (my.cnf) and socket (mysql.sock) the same for all versions of MySQL and MariaDB in the ports tree. The current state complicated things too much and the gain of changes is nothing, just the change for the change. More cooperation between MariaDB and MySQL maintainers is needed. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
