Hi Krishna,

I think this bug is the reason why the patron clubs didn't install properly:


It's on his way into the next stable releases.

For DBMS, see here: https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Koha_on_Debian#Debian_Packages_on_Koha

'Koha does not work well with MySQL 5.7 which is shipped with Ubuntu 16.04. use MariaDB instead'

Hope this helps,

Hi Michael,

The below link has a reference to using MariaDB. It says - Koha does not

I agree with your view in Bug 18962. Now I have the following queries.
Looking forward to help from the Koha community on these

Why Patron Clubs feature didnt get installed when we upgraded to 17.05 ? Is
it because we are having MySql 5.7 ?
Why the upgrade didnt give any error ?
What we should do now to install this feature ?
And should we be moving to MariaDB ? How do we do it ?

The other open bugs in patron clubs feature all relate to using MySQL.
Looks like the clubs feature will get installed properly only if MariaDB
is used.Mark Alexander and Michael Kuhn, are you using MySQL ? Have you
tried the clubs feature using Maria DB ?

Yes, we are using MySQL 5.5.55.

No, we didn't try MariaDB. On the Koha Community page
https://koha-community.org/download-koha/ MySQL is given as the
recommended database management system. MariaDB does not seem to be an
officially supported DBMS or someone forgot to add it there.

Concerning this matter I still support what I already have said in Bug
18962 (Including valid system requirements in Koha manual)
