How to actually set up MariaDB replication/high availability

I’m setting up a high availability LAMP stack – so far, I have two servers with HAProxy running on both their frontends that own a floating IP. HAProxy redirects requests to backend Apache servers running on each of them (same machine, port 8000).

This all works, and I’m happy with this so far for high availability. I have yet to deal with the databases yet however.

Since I only have two servers, I don’t think I can do master-master like Galera cluster due to the requirement of quorum. So, I planned to do master-slave read only replication.

Most of the guides I see online don’t mention the MaxScale proxy that MariaDB suggests in its high availability guide (page 4 for example)

I’m just really confused overall on what to do and how to set it up?

From my perspective, I’d like to set up a MaxScale proxy on one of my servers and run MariaDB on both servers; MaxScale will handle things like redirects. How can I actually accomplish what I’m looking for?

MariaDB subqueries to same table and column resulting in several columns

I have a table and want to pick monthly minute data to compare column wize in 10.3.13-MariaDB

Tested and tested for hours and hours different approaches without success, one example is below. Some tests does not complain syntactically but takes forever, and some tests complains about column names not recognized. All subqueries if tested separately return the same number of records, each in one column.


(SELECT rdate from OO where month(rdate) = 7 and year(rdate) = 2006) AS RD,

(SELECT ot from OO where month(rdate)=7 and year(rdate) =2006) AS OT1,

(SELECT ot from OO where month(rdate)=7 and year(rdate) =2007) AS OT2,

(SELECT ot from OO where month(rdate)=7 and year(rdate) =2008) AS OT3;`

The result should be something like:


2006-07-01 00:00:00 1.2345 2.1234 1.543

… … … …

2006-07-31 23:59:00 3.456 3.234 2.234`

And, no I dont want to use UNION because then they will still follow one after the other…

Any thoughts?!

SQLMap Only Returns information_schema

I run this command python -u --data "id=1" --tamper="between,randomcase,space2comment" -v 3 --random-agent --dbs but SQLMap only returns information_schema database.

Is there something wrong (if so, is there anything I can do to circumvent it ?) or the database really only has 1 database ?

Why are CASE-expressions in the list documenting operator precedence?

In the list here:

case-expressions are put at the same precedence level as BETWEEN, between the NOT operator and the comparison operators.

However, case-expressions always begin with CASE and end with END, and all subexpressions are also delimited by the CASE keywords. They’re like parenthetical expressions, so I don’t understand why case-expressions are on this list.

Is there an SQL expression that would be parsed differently if the case-expression precedence was set higher or lower?

How to turn on GTID on MariaDB if already using binary/position replication?

MariaDB 10.3

current master config


current slave config


I can stop both master and slave if needed for changing replication method.

So questions are:

  1. Do I need to stop replication and application and then execute “CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_USE_GTID = slave_pos” Is it enough? Should I purge bin logs?
  2. If so how do slave knows about where master server is?
  3. Should I changed binlog-format to “row”?

Can InnoDB data at rest encryption be overriden

I am exploring options for distributing a MySQL/MariaDB database with my app. I want to ensure users (even the root user) cannot view or manipulate data in my database/tables. Recent releases of MySQL and MariaDB have data-at-rest capabilities:


MySQL 5.7.11 comes with InnoDB tablespace encryption

But what is not clear to me is: Can the MySQL root user reset the encryption password on my database/tables to view or manipulate the contents?
