I have tried using MySQL on my My Cloud Ex2 to support the Kodi database on two different platforms. Share one database and cut the maintenance in half. But I found the MySQL response slower and went back to each having their own database locally.
I read today that MariaDB server can run on almost any NAS and it is much faster. But I see to current means to install it on my My Cloud. I see QNAP’s frequently refer to the MariaDB.
Is there a means to install the MariaDB on these units and if so is there some link to how that is done?
BTW. I have not update to OS5 as I do share my device on the Internet and read to many reports of issues migrating to OS5 from OS3.
