Debian 8 - Install MariaDB 10.1

You can run the script below to install MariaDB 10.1.x on Debian and receive updates.

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common -y

# Add the key so we trust packages from MariaDB
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xcbcb082a1bb943db

# Add the repo
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64,i386] http://lon1.mirrors.digitalocean.com/mariadb/repo/10.1/debian jessie main'

# Install the database
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mariadb-server -y

Unfortunately there isn't a Maraia DB 10.1 package from the Debian repositories, but you can install mariadb 10.0 with:

mariadb-server-10.0

Default My.cnf

In case it comes in useful, this is the default my.cnf configuration that the 10.1. installation comes with:

# MariaDB database server configuration file.
#
# You can copy this file to one of:
# - "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" to set global options,
# - "~/.my.cnf" to set user-specific options.
# 
# One can use all long options that the program supports.
# Run program with --help to get a list of available options and with
# --print-defaults to see which it would actually understand and use.
#
# For explanations see
# http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/server-system-variables.html

# This will be passed to all mysql clients
# It has been reported that passwords should be enclosed with ticks/quotes
# escpecially if they contain "#" chars...
# Remember to edit /etc/mysql/debian.cnf when changing the socket location.
