A guide to setting up Mariadb/MySql on #Linux to use with #Kodi. The guide uses Ubuntu & Arch as examples. #Mariadb is a forked version of #Mysql. There is a few differences, but nothing that would effect a Kodi setup. This setup is great for a media server so you can easily jump between devices. If you have any questions about the setup, please leave a comment and I will be happy to help to the best of my ability.
If you liked the video please like & share to let me know you want to see more Linux Kodi content.
