Overview of this book

MariaDB is a database that has become very popular in the few short years that it has been around. It does not require a big server or expensive support contract. It is also powerful enough to be the database of choice for some of the biggest and most popular websites in the world, taking full advantage of the latest computing hardware available. From installing and configuring through basic usage and maintenance, each chapter in this revised and expanded guide leads on sequentially and logically from the one before it, introducing topics in their natural order so you learn what you need, when you need it. The book is based on the latest release of MariaDB and covers all the latest features and functions. By the end of this beginner-friendly book, not only will you have a running installation of MariaDB, but you will have practical, hands-on experience in the basics of how to install, configure, administer, use, and maintain it.

MariaDB Next Steps


In this chapter, we learned about adding and removing users and giving those users the permissions that they need or taking them away as needed.

Up until now, we've only talked about things related to our databases (securing them, managing users, and so on). We haven't actually done anything with any real data—the stuff that databases are good at storing, manipulating, and retrieving. Well, it is now time to look at this. The next three chapters are all about using MariaDB. We'll learn the basic SQL commands that we can use with the mysql command-line client program to create databases, insert data, read data, and so on in the next three chapters.
