Raspberry Pi4 environment

Even though, Raspbian is a Linux distribution, it's a bit tricky to install the standard packages which on Ubuntu makes no problems at all.


The update in this case is a must, without this it's impossible to run the project by following the steps in this guide.

Call these commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Php pear and pecl

  1. Install the MySQL server software to your Raspberry Pi by calling: sudo apt install mariadb-server

  2. It's now needed to secure it by setting a password for the root user.

By default, MySQL is installed without any password set up meaning you can access the MySQL server without any authentication. Run the following command to begin the MySQL securing process. sudo mysql_secure_installation

Follow the prompts to set a password for the root user and to secure your MySQL installation. For a more secure installation, answer Y to all prompts when asked to answer Y or N.
