    Go MySQL native driver for PHP (mysqlnd), go PHP 5.3! mysqlnd ships with the PHP source code. No need to care about PHP 5.1.5.- PHP 5.1… what was that, I don't remember.

  • This is great progress, but it doesn't include all major open source storage engines. It has neither the built-in nor the plug-in versions of InnoDB. When XtraDB was added they were removed.

    I haven't tried Maria yet, but I'd strongly suggest people try WebYog. I've been using it for years. I even use it on my Mac via Parallels because there is no better native Mac client. Yes, using in Parallels sucks, but WebYog is that good.
