I'm really new to MariaDB and I need to set up encryption at rest. I'm running MariaDB 10.3 on Windows Svr 2012R2.

I have created a key and added the following to my config file (my.ini)

file-key-management-filename = "C:/MariaDB/data/keys.txt"

The service starts fine. However when I go to open the MySQL Client I get the following error:

C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.3\bin\mysql.exe: unknown variable 'plugin-load-add=file_key_management.dll'

The dll is present and in the plugin-dir location specified in the config file.

Can anyone help me please?

  • same to me. there is no clear manual or help guide what should you do in that case and MariaDB manual is broken. i was able to find tickets on their JIRA about that kind of issue and all that they are doing is just saying 'yes yes we will fix everything' – Danil Gordeev Mar 20 '19 at 13:37

mariadb from version 10.3 use other command in config: [mariadb] plugin_load_add = file_key_management like show in here
