MariaDB???

Hi

I installed xampp on my desktop pc and went to install a sql dump I was sent, The dump is large and when I use either mysql developer desktop or navicat or any other admin tool I either get a “server has gone away ”  error or a compatability issue with maria db.

would appreciate any thoughts

cheers

Ian
