Trial License : Is non-java database setup possible?

Hello all,

Is it possible to set-up a MySQL database with the trial license?  

I am interested to see how this interacts and affects system load. I have a running trial version of Confluence and am interested in making a purchase, however I want to test how this will interact with MySQL 5.5 on RHEL 7, and if I could use MariaDB in lieu of MySQL (read this works on 5.1.3 : I want to figure this out before committing to a subscription.



Any information is much appreciated.

Yes.  The licences just affect usage, not functionality.  The code, and support for features and settings are all the same, the licence just stops you from using the functions

A common practice for smaller users is to use a trial licence to set up and try a system to be used as production, and when they decide to go with it, they simply apply a production licence.

So, you can set up your system now with MySQL on the trial, and converting it to production is just "paste new licence key in"

However.  MariaDB is not supported (yet) and is actively known to cause problems with JIRA 7.  Do not use it, use one of the versions listed under
