Just installed the latest virtualmin on a brand new Centos7, and before installing virtualmin I also installed the latest mysql5.7.
For some reason, Virtualmin is now looking for mariadb instead of mysql inside the Mysql Module!
Failed to start database :
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start mariadb.service
Failed to start mariadb.service: Unit mariadb.service failed to load: No such file or directory.
When I try to yum install mariadb I get this
[root@CentOS-72-64-minimal ~]# yum install mariadb Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: mirror.checkdomain.de * epel: mirrors.n-ix.net * extras: mirror.checkdomain.de * remi-safe: remi.schlundtech.de * updates: mirror.checkdomain.de Package 1:mariadb-5.5.44-2.el7.centos.x86_64 is obsoleted by mysql-community-client-5.7.10-1.el7.x86_64 which is already installed Nothing to do
Also found this related post https://www.virtualmin.com/node/34227, but IMHO the MySQL module should not be looking for MariaDB. A separate MariaDB should be doing that…I am happy with mysql 5.7. No need for mariadb…
