For my few hobby projects (web games + forums) I have been using CentOS 5 (then 6) with Drupal and PostgreSQL plus few custom PHP and Perl scripts written by mysef.
Since PostgreSQL version delivered with CentOS package has been a bit dated, I always used the PGDG packages:
# rpm -qa | grep -i pgdg pgdg-centos93-9.3-1.noarch postgresql93-9.3.5-1PGDG.rhel6.i686 postgresql93-libs-9.3.5-1PGDG.rhel6.i686 postgresql93-server-9.3.5-1PGDG.rhel6.i686
As a web developer this has been a very pleasant experience, since (by some great magic) all the other CentOS packages (like php-pgsql and perl-DBD-Pg) just worked with the PGDG packages.
Now I have decided to switch to WordPress for my new projects and am forced to switch the database too:
I have to use MySQL or MariaDB with CentOS 6.5.
So my question is: if anybody can recommend a similarly comfortable package repository for MySQL/MariaDB - which wouldn't mess up any other CentOS packages and which would update itself (with
And please do not suggest something like Fedora or EPEL repositories, because other than for MySQL/MariaDB I would like not to add any additional packages to have my server as "stable" as possible.
