It was June 2014 when I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ MySQL database from scratch.
Its been upgraded through at least 3 different versions of RadioDJ and its database updates now and is still going strong.
“In all the years I’ve been doing Internet Radio this is the longest I’ve gone without having to rebuild a database”
Some of the credit for the stability also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot more stable and easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.
When I used other automation software I was having to rebuild the database from scratch every other week as it was just so unstable and badly written…
Plus that piece of software didn’t have a backup tool so when the database went wrong you lost all your data which sucked!
You can find out how to install MariaDB for use with RadioDJ Here
The RadioDJ database setup tool takes a daily backup of your MySQL data and is easily restored if the worst should happen.
“The only issue we’ve had with the database since we first installed MariaDB was after a power cut which caused some of the tables to crash but it was easily solved using HeidiSQL to quickly repair them, Thankfully power cuts don’t happen that often where we live”
Other than that one issue with a sudden power cut the RadioDJ database has been amazingly rock solid & reliable.
