MariaDB - Will limesurvey work on MariaDB?
Does anyone know if Lime Survey will work with MariaDB as opposed to MySQL?
Additionally, if it does work can existing LS MySQL databases be moved across to MariaDB without issue?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
What's the benefit of running Maria DB instead of MySQL?

We do NOT recommend running MySQL 5.5 or higher. We instead recommend switching to a comparable MariaDB version, like most Linux distros have done in the last 2 years. Unfortunately, MySQL 5.5 removed a lot of legacy code that helped it to run better, That code is still in MariaDB, which is a drop-in replacement for MySQL.
