    Hello,
    I am planning to install ISPConfig 3.2 on a new Ubuntu 20.04 VPS.

    Are they compatible?
    Should I install Mysql or Mariadb?
    Thanks for your attentions. :rolleyes:

    Use MariaDB, as shown in the ISPConfig install guides.

    You can follow the perfect server tutorial for Ubuntu 20.04: https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial...l-pureftpd-bind-postfix-doveot-and-ispconfig/

    At the step to install ISPConfig, don't run
    Code:
    cd /tmp 
    wget -O ispconfig.tar.gz https://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/ISPConfig-3-nightly.tar.gz
    tar xfz ispconfig.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3*/install/
    but run
    Code:
    cd /tmp 
    wget -O ispconfig.tar.gz https://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
    tar xfz ispconfig.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3*/install/
    instead, so you use the latest stable version instead of a potentionally unstable nightly build.

    Till and Thom,
    Thank you.
    But 99% php software scripts request mysql as installation requirement.
    Could Mariadb become a problem when running these 3rd party software scripts? :oops:

    MariaDB is a MySQL server, so there's no problem there.

    I had the same concerns: "but it says MySQL and I'm loading MariaDB - I know it's written by the same guy but can we substitute?" Yes. MariaDB is 100% compatible with MySQL. The "mysql" commands that we execute are executed in MariaDB. It's completely transparent to us. All of your concerns about this can now be put to rest. :)
