After I installed the stack i found that the stack contains MariaDB and not MySQL. Please can you supply a stack that contains MySQL.
And just in case MariaDB is NOT the same as MySQL.

Hi @dirkbez,

Unfortunately we don’t have it available. Our applications ship with MariaDB whenever it’s supported by the application.


It will be a great help if you update the stack’s webpage stating that the stack is with MariaDB and not MySQL. That way at least users won’t have to download and install the stack only to find that it is not what they want.
Up till now I liked using the WAMP stack however I will now have to find an alternate solution.
