MariaDB, a popular open-source relational database system, was originally forked from MySQL. It has since gained traction for its community-driven approach, enhanced features, and scalability. While MariaDB is predominantly utilized on Linux-based systems, its growing popularity has led to increased adoption on Windows platforms.
There are instances where users might not need the entire MariaDB server on their Windows machine but only the client to connect to remote MariaDB servers. MariaDB provides a client for Windows, making it convenient for users to manage databases without the overhead of a full server installation.
Whether you're a database administrator, developer, or just someone looking to manage MariaDB databases from a Windows machine, this guide will help you seamlessly install the MariaDB client on Windows.
