    Hi folks. My 16.04 server is running MariaDB however, a package I want to install uses MySQL and, when I run the package it specifically says it can't find MySQL and stops at that point. Is it possible to install MySQL to run alongside MariaDB and, if so, how do I do that?There''s also the question of how to configure it so Apache2/PHP can see it and have, effectively to copies of phpmyadmin, one for ech environment.

    Since debian has them... did you try
    sudo apt-get install libmariadbclient-dev-compat libmariadb-dev-compat
