    Might want to search for mariadb-(client|server) instead?
    They changed to it with Debian 9...

    Yeah, Debian prioritizes MariaDB, which is a libre fork of MySQL, since it got acquired by (O)ne (R)ich (A)sshole (C)alled (L)arry (E)llison.

    Also, all the mysql commands work for MariaDB. Same commands, same syntax. Same DB structure, as far as I know.

    @bahua There are differences, sometimes important ones, but Maria is a drop-in replacement in almost every case. Often, it just does the same things better and the difference is transparent.
