Comments - symlinked database directories not loading under windows

9 years, 9 months ago Vladislav Vaintroub

Works for me (creating directory 'foo' somewhere, symlink it under datadir, using mklink, in the client "use foo", create table)

There is nothing necessary in my.ini to get this support, it refers to the fake .sym symlinks

You might have permission problems, wild guessing here because you do not provide much context and error messages.

IF you still think it is MariaDB's fault, then please create a bug in JIRA, and provide error log and procmon log, as described here.

Yeah - will log a bug, but there are no errors logged, and nothing to indicate it's even following the path.

Meh - I had uploaded a piccy illustrating the issue, but I've created the bug as well


Procmon reports access denied trying to access the folder itself, and access deneied when evaluating db.opt - MySQL doesn't throw the error, and I've attached the process monitor log showing MySQL succeeding and MariaDB failing Cheers
