[EP-tech] Re: MySQL version

Hi Matthew,

Without being able to give you an authoritative answer, I see no reason
why EPrints wouldn't support the latest MySQL version available (or
MariaDB for that matter), since by diagonally looking at its tables, I
haven't seen any peculiar MySQL-specific stuff happening.

I can confirm that EPrints will work quite happily with a PostgreSQL database.... though you definitely need a MySQL instance to actually install the app from source.

However the original posters question was about the VERSION of MySQL - and eprints doesn't do anything platform-specific.... so unless different versions of MySQL don't support some part of the SQL Standard, version won't matter.

I suppose, though, that somebody could give you a more thorough answer.

Hi Everyone,

Our DBA has asked what’s the latest version of MySQL that ePrints
supports.  And I can’t actually find it anywhere in the wiki, or
anywhere else for that matter, except for smatterings in the eptech
list where people mention versions they are using when discussing
problems etc.

Is there any officially sanctioned version to use, being that we are
running ePrints 3.3.10? Or not go past due to other considerations?

As always, thought for or against are welcome J
