MariaDB hassle


For a TAFE project I am doing some stuff in PHP (simple store, see it live on https://manga.gnupluslinux.com and find the source code here) and it requires some databases.

I designed the database in WorkBench and attempted to forward engineer it to my local instance of MariaDB which lead to an error message.

Long story short, MariDB does not support the 'VISIBLE' key word, yet it claims to be a drop in replacement for MySQL. It mostly is, but that's annoying.

You can either remove the keyword 'VISIBLE' from the generated script or set your target MySQL version to 5.7 in WorkBench which does not support the keyword.
