VSI-supported version of Mariadb V5.5.63 for OpenVMS has released

Post by m_detommaso » Thu Jun 20, 2019 10:39 am

"VMS Software Inc. (VSI) is pleased to announce a VSI-supported version of Mariadb for OpenVMS. MariaDB maintains high compatibility with MySQL, with matching APIs, commands, and wire protocol. This OpenVMS port of MariaDB includes all core functionality supported by the 5.5.63 open source release and leverages OpenSSL 10.2.r for encrypted communications.

VMS Software Inc. would like to acknowledge the work of the MariaDB development team for their on-going efforts in developing and supporting this product. VMS Software Inc. would also like to acknowledge Mark Berryman for his pioneering work in porting MariaDB to OpenVMS.

As this is a new product provided by VMS Software Inc. there are currently no tools provided to upgrade from previous database versions. Such tools will be provided in future releases if they are required."

That is good news.

I am hoping this is being ported to x64 as well very soon. In combination with Apache this would make OpenVMS x64 instantly usable for new users (without ported legacy applications).

Hi,

at this location there is a version 5.5.64 available for OpenVMS (ported by Mark Berryman).
https://www.theberrymans.com/php_kits/

Is this the same release or a different porting branch?

Best regards
Andreas
