I have used the MariaDB, which was installed when I installed XAMPP. It
worked fine. But due to XAMPP is was difficult to manage, so I removed
it and installed MySQL community server separately. Server only, no
Then my problem started and I was happy to fix it. Since then it runs fine.
I know quite a lot about Linux. Followed a course of Unix long time ago.
I have VMWare installed and have a lot of Linuxes as virtual machines.
On an old laptop I replaced Windows by Zorin OS. This works fine.
But with Linux there are still some difficulties. Sometimes I run into
problems with managing the rights, or with an application that won't work.
My knowledge of Linux is nog good enough to run it on our server.
I can handle Windows very well, and that's the reason I chose for
Windows on our server.
