Ok, i got i the install script working,

Not sure it was related to mariadb / mysql, as i switched to mysql; but when --db-hostname is set to localhost, odbc uses a socket, setting it to make it actually use a tcp/ip connection.

Still, MariaDB is not officially supported. While it may seem to work, you may run into issues later. Please consider changing the db to MySQL.

Now, i m facing another issue, after the first login on the web console. it requires me to change the 'root' password has it is marked as expired. But once i do so, neither the new or old password allows me to get in.


Edit: i m using mysql now.
