Comments - Should MariaDB Docker Containers really be using MacOS setting for lower_case_table_names when hosted in Windows?

Yes! I think we're heading in the same direction. I posted a followup comment referring to the "lower_case_table_names=2 because file system for %s is case insensitive" issue, but that seems to have been flagged as 'needs_moderation' for some reason.

OK, and perhaps the underlying issue is the lower_case_file_system detection.

But... two issues, possibly unrelated...

1. The single .sql dump file from phpMyAdmin does not work as a seed for mariadb in Docker when lower_case_table_names is set to 2. But if you run manual sql statements one after the other, first the create table statement, and then the alter table statements, everything works regardless of the lower_case_table_names is set to 2. So what's going on there??

2. If mariadb can tell the file system is case insensitive... can't it go the extra mile and detect that the host OS / file system is windows, and then use the preferred Windows setting of 1 instead of 2? Because setting 1 seems to make everything work smoothly and would seem to be the preferred setting in Windows.

Thank you for the quick reply!
