How could I use Mysql 8 instead of MariaDB? I can install and configure Mysql 8 itself, but how do I make it work with Webinoly?

Just do it!

Install Nginx and PHP with Webinoly and then you can manually install MySQL or whatever other package or tool you want.

If I run wget -qO weby qrok.es/wy && sudo bash weby 2

And the https://www.tecmint.com/install-mysql-8-in-ubuntu/

Running site example.com -wp brings [ERROR] MySQL is not installed or localhost was not found!

So it seems you have to install the site manually, which for me defeats the purpose of using a script in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I am really grateful for this script in general. And it could be that MariaDB is better choice for WP.

Yes, I understand and to be honest you would have to hack a lot of things in Webinoly to get your own package integrated with Webinoly commands.

Can I ask why you don't want to use MariaDB? Any downsides?
I am trying to find the optimal setup, so I went through these articles:



MariaDB 10.3 or MySQL would be the best choice. I have now added MariaDB 10.3 repo before installing Webinoly's full stack and it seems to work like a breeze. One idea is that this could be a choice on the script itself.

It won't be a choise in Webinoly, adopting the newest versions so early is not always recommended.

Following our roadmap MariaDB will be upgraded to 10.3 in Webinoly v1.7.0 scheduled to be released in december 2018.
