I have XAMPP for Windows 7.0.3 installed, which comes with 10.1.10-MariaDB. We would like to evaluate the possibilities of table encryption locally before setting up everything on the productive Linux severs. But it seems that the MariaDB version shipped with XAMPP is not contain the enryption plugin.
We defined the following in the my.ini:
Which yielded: "cannot enable encryption, encryption plugin is not available."
Using other settings to define the location of the key file and the encryption method…
file_key_management_filename = /…keys.enc
…yields errors because those variable names are not known.
Is the file_key_management plugin available at all for Windows?
