Re: Passwordless MariaDB root login with auth_socket in Debian continues..


Hi, could you attach the error log to know why the service start failed?

        it might be worth you noting the issue I found last month -
        mariadb and
        perconadb (and maybe mysql upstream, I'm unsure) use different
        names for
        the unix socket plugin, so switching between servers with the
        same data
        directory using this plugin does not work:


        I'm unsure if Debian uses different data directories for mariadb
        than /var/lib/mysql. The percona packages don't, and mariadb's own
        packages do not.

        There are plenty of other things that make switching mysql
        difficult, but the default authentication stopping working
        seems like
        it's going to affect a lot of people!
