For licence reasons, we have to change our mySQL Database to MariaDB.
The database was installed succesfully but JIRA does not start with the connector of MariaDB I have downloaded here : https://downloads.mariadb.org/client-java/1.1.8/
It still requires the official mySQL connector.
Do you know what dbconfig.xml should I use ?
Any experience of JIRA with Maria DB ?
For support reasons, I'd suggest that you do not do this. Atlassian only support MySQL, PostGreSQL, Oracle and MS-SQL-server. If you use another database, they will try to help you, but if they suspect the database, you're on your own and will need to migrate back to a supported one to get any further help. (I suspect Maria support will arrive eventually, but it's not going to be soon)
That said, you can make other databases work fine with JIRA. I've run it on some pretty unusual ones, and the trick is basically to make the Tomcat datasource work correctly. I've not tried it with Maria, but the ones I did make it work with were simply a case of following the instructions for connecting up a Tomcat and checking for quirks.
So, what error messages are you getting when you try MariaDB?
Thanks. The tool "config.bat" says :
Driver for the database MySQL not found. Ensure it is installed in the 'lib' directory.
If you are upgrading a standalone distribution of JIRA, this may be due to the fact that JIRA no longer ships with MySQL drivers.
Please visit https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/docs-062/Connecting+JIRA+to+MySQL for more information.
What type of database should I use ?
What is the dataconfig.xml should I write ?
Oh, you won't get it to work with the wizards, they only handle the supported databases. You could select MySQL for now, run with that and then swap over to Maria later (before putting any data into it). The MariaDB driver needs to go into the Tomcat lib directory rather that JIRAs though.
