MariaDB will not bind to "localhost" if localhost is both IPv4/IPv6 enabled


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 10.0.1, 5.5.30
    • Fix Version/s: 5.5.31
    • Component/s: None
    • Labels:
    • Environment:
      Linux 2.6, with "localhost" being defined as both and ::1


      If a host is configured with both an IPv6 and an IPv4 address, MariaDB will not start up. This was reported against mysql in http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=61713, and was later fixed. This fix is not in MariaDB.

      I would also note that the mysql folks fixed it incorrectly. Please see http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=65122 for the follow up.

      We are looking at migrating from MySQL to using MariaDB, but this inability to properly support IPv6 means that migration is a no-starter. I am astonished that since this was already at least partially fixed in MySQL it is not already in MariaDB.
