But whole trying access my Moodle, I’m getting the following error.
Error: Database connection failed
It is possible that the database is overloaded or otherwise not running
The site administrator should also check that the database details have
been correctly specified in config.php
Did I missed any steps in between?
Is there a way to solve the issue?
@Andy_Wismer Sorry for making any confusion.
You are right, currently my Moodle instance is running from an Ubuntu/MySQL AWS EC2. But based on a client request, we are planning to tryout NS (EC2) with MariaDB (RDS) . As the first step we are trying to migrate from MySQL to MariaDB, and hence got this error. So thought of asking my issue here though I haven’t started using NS.
I’d suggest asking the Moodle guys on their Forum about the specifics of migrating MySQL → MariaDB.
When forked from MySQL, MariaDB was binary, API and file compatible with MySQL, but there are probably quite a few differences since then, as both have different development and focus.
The guys there probably have a suitable script to migrate the data and whatever needs to be adapted.
There IS a Moodle module for NethServer, whch works more or less out of the box, and uses MariaDB like almost all other applications on NethServer. There are actually often several different versions of MariaDB running concurrently on NethServer. NextCloud uses the latest in NethServer, it’s running on 10.5…
