MariaDB support

Hello guys,

Is there any extension for MariaDB support ? I know that MariaDB is mysql backwards compatible but I’m curios if anyone has created an actual extension to support MariaDB in Yii.


I don’t think there’s any need for that. I am running an unaltered version of Yii on MariaDB just fine.

Did you get any considerable improvements/advantages using MariaDB instead of MySQL ?

The query optimizer seems to be better. I get decreased system load and about 10ms less response time per request. Be careful, though: There are now some things that work on MariaDB but not on MySQL.
