I tried to "upgrade" MySQL 5.5 to MariaDB by removing MySQL altogether. Then I installed MariaDB 10.1 as follows:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xcbcb082a1bb943db sudo add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64,i386] http://sfo1.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.1/debian jessie main' sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mariadb-server service apache2 restart
But afterwards, phpMyAdmin did not load, and was returning 404. The app I was using was loading fine, and I was able to connect to the Database via command line. and
mysql -V returned mariadb version.
So I removed phpMyAdmin, and MariaDB as follows:
service mysql stop apt-get --purge remove "mysql*" mv /etc/mysql/ /tmp/mysql_configs/ apt-get remove --purge mysql* apt-get autoremove apt-get autoclean apt-get purge phpmyadmin apt-get autoremove phpmyadmin service apache2 restart apt-get update
cleared the mariadb entries in the sources file:
Now, each time I try to
apt-get install anything it returns me an error:
apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: mariadb-server-10.0 : Depends: mariadb-client-10.0 (>= 10.0.22-0+deb8u1) but it is not going to be installed Depends: mariadb-server-core-10.0 (>= 10.0.22-0+deb8u1) but it is not going to be installed PreDepends: mariadb-common but it is not going to be installed Breaks: mysql-server mysql-client : Depends: mysql-client-5.5 mysql-server : Depends: mysql-server-5.5 but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
This erros is for anything I try to install. And I did try to
apt-get -f install. Any ideas what I messed up and how to fix it?
