I am using InstantWP which installs a virtual server running Alpine Linux. InstantWP is for running a local version of Wordpress. It has MariaDB 10.1 installed, which isn't the latest version of mariadb.
So I try
sudo apk add mariadb. This returns an error:
WARNING: This apk-tools is OLD! Some packages might not function properly. WARNING: The repository tag for world dependency 'apk-tools@edge' does not exist ERROR: Not committing changes due to missing repository tags. Use --force to override.
I tried doing
sudo apk update and inspecting
apk/repositories is showing:
#/media/cdrom/apks http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.6/main #http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.5/community #http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/main http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/community #http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/testing
Nothing seems to fix this. What is going on?
The main issue is when I import my sql file from MySQL 8.0 via phpmyadmin, it returns an error:
#1273 - Unknown collation: 'utf8mb4_0900_ai_ci' and I read running the latest version of
mariadb might be the solution.
