This file allow us to use native client instead of mysqlnd so that php can use custom mariadb authentication like pam_unix or pam_gssapi
#preparing mariadb client
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 0xF1656F24C74CD1D8
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64,arm64,i386,ppc64el] xenial main'
# install basic package, ensure basic function of php/apache/mysql is working properly
sudo apt install apache2 libapache2-mod-php7.2 php7.2 php7.2-cli php7.2-mysql git libmysqlclient20 libmysqlclient-dev php7.2-dev
# install mariadb client and some library
sudo apt install mariadb-client-10.3 mariadb-plugin-gssapi-client libmariadb-dev libmariadbclient18
# due to at mariadb_config not included mariadb/server header file, work arround is copy all into mariadb folder
sudo cp -a /usr/include/mariadb/server/*.h /usr/include/mariadb
sudo cp -a /usr/include/mariadb/server/mysql/* /usr/include/mariadb/mysql
# we wish to use ubuntu default php, cause it is much easier to maintain, however, we need to recompile extension mysql related extension to use unix libmysqlclient20-dev.
# according to php, it is not recommended. But, we need to do that since they wont plan to support external mysql authentication
git clone
cd php-src
git checkout PHP-7.2.10
#start compiling mysqli, override php's mysqli connection library
cd ext/mysqli # or pdo_mysql depends which connector, u can do both
sed -i 's/mysqlclient/mariadbclient/g' config.m4
./configure --with-mysqli=/usr/bin/mariadb_config
sudo cp modules/ /usr/lib/php/20151012
#start comiling pdo_mysql, override php's pdo_mysql connection library
cd ext/pdo_mysql # or pdo_mysql depends which connector, u can do both
./configure --with-pdo-mysql=/usr/bin/mariadb_config
sudo cp modules/ /usr/lib/php/20151012
echo "now, test create a php file, use command line try connect to any mariadb server"
