MariaDB 10.2 Compatibility?

Recommended Posts

Is Revive Adserver compatible with MariaDB 10.2 ? I am currently running MariaDB 10.1, and see this warning when I go to upgrade:

MariaDB enables "strict mode" by default as of version 10.2. Strict mode controls how MariaDB and MySQL handle invalid or missing values in data-change statements such as INSERT or UPDATE. Applications not built with strict mode enabled may cause undesired behavior; please verify applications using MariaDB are compatible before upgrading. More information about strict mode is available here

Maybe the solution is for me to turn on strict mode on my current mariadb 10.1 using what I learned here:


and see if everything goes ok? My concern is that bad things could start happening to the db without me noticing right away.

I was really hoping that the developers on this software could help with this more...who else should know this besides them? MariaDB is now the standard, and mysql support will end soon.

Scott001, How are you making out with Revive and mariaDB? Did you have to disable strict mode?

Any other feedback on mariaDB overall? I'm trying to decide if I should convert from mySQL on a new server setup.

So I've always used Revive-Adervers and never had any problems. We have now also been using MySQL 10.4.17-MariaDB at our hoster (Domainfactory) since April 2020 and everything went well with that too.

Unfortunately, the update from v5.2.0 to v5.2.1 now fails and here in the forum I am only referred to the system requirements, which unfortunately does not help at all. At least for me.

If I don't get the problem resolved somehow, I'll have to look for something other adserver-tool.

Also, I have strict mode off.


sorry for the late response, was away from home.
The problem with the error is that apart from a picture of the error message that appears during the update process, I can't really tell you anything. It had always worked up to this version of Revive and now the message from the screenshot appears and I don't know what to do next.

"the strict mode is off", where do I switch this over for a test?


Best wishes,

 Ohh man, sometimes I'm just stupid. For whatever reason I downloaded 5.1.0, but named Zip 5.2.1. The error message therefore probably meant that the version is older than the one already installed.

In the end I downloaded the whole package again and tried it again => it worked ?

Thank you so much! If I hadn't looked for an exact error message, I would probably never have noticed the wrong version number.
