DBD::MariaDB - database driver for Perl

Github Actions CI Build Status AppVeyor Build Status Cirrus CI FreeBSD Build Status

This is the Perl DBI driver for access to MariaDB and MySQL databases.

The goal of our effort was to fix MariaDB compatibility, Perl Unicode support and security related bugs.

This Perl DBI driver is a fork of the DBD::mysql driver and was created because said issues in the original DBD::mysql have not been addressed for more than a year.


Usage of this Perl DBI driver is described in DBD::MariaDB.


Installation is described in DBD::MariaDB::INSTALL.
