MariaDB 10 and different socket

Post by AndilgE »

Hi all,

I'm running HotelDruid on a Synology DM218+ and it's been working like a charm for many month. An upcoming Aynology firmware version will require migration from Maria DB 5 to 10. Version 10 is reverse compatible with version 5, so basically not a problem for HotelDruid.

Synology implemented a dedicated MariaDB 10 socket
and port

Now when I do fresh installation from scratch, I an define a port, but no chance in defining a dedicated socket. As a result it never connects to the data base.

Is there a way to get around this problem at all?

there is only the option to connect to mysql/mariadb through a tcp port, not a socket. If you have the file db_hoteldruid in dati then you're using sqlite as database.

Problems installing, configuring, upgrading?
