MariaDB starting with 10.0
The CONNECT engine was introduced in MariaDB 10.0.
The CONNECT storage engine is enabled like any other plugin, for instance using the INSTALL SONAME command:
INSTALL SONAME 'ha_connect';
For the INSTALL command to work, the libraries (
ha_connect.so.0.0.0) must be placed in the standard
MariaDB plugin directory, which is automatically done when using the standard install commands.
