how i can use mariadb Instead of mysql in phalcon ?
MariaDB is a replacement for MySQL, so works exactly as MySQL does, no changes are necessary
I can attest this and have MariaDB running using Phalcon MySQL settings on a couple of production servers.
Ok, but MySQL adapter don't offers same functions to MariaDB, using the COLUMN_GET for COLUMNS JSON for example.
It doesnt, but since Phalcon ORM only implements the standard SQL functions, there shouldn't be any problem.
