something appeared to go wrong with my virtualmin/webmin install in regards to MariaDB.
i was receiving this message:
Problem: package MariaDB-server-xxx requires MariaDB-client, but none of the providers can be installed
the dnf message also referenced:
running these manually did not resolve anything. and the server configuration was complaining about the missing " /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld" file.
however, i was able to indeed install Mariadb 10.5 using dnf no problem.
to resolve, i went into the MariaDB Database Server configuration and changed:
OLD: Command to start MySQL server: /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld start
NEW: Command to start MySQL server: systemctl start mariadb.service
OLD: Command to start MySQL server: /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld stop
NEW: Command to start MySQL server: systemctl stop mariadb.service
i have never needed to do this before, but maybe it’s just because RockyLinux is still in its infancy.
and /virtual-server/check.cgi?&undefined=&xnavigation=1 now appears to be satisfied.
