Configure MariaDB for Backdrop
By default MariaDB installation is not secured, so you will need to secure it first.
You can secure it by running the mysql_secure_installation script.
Answer all the questions as shown below:
Enter current password for root (enter for none):
Change the root password? [Y/n] n
Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] Y
Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] Y
Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] Y
Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] Y
Next, login to MariaDB console and create a database for the Backdrop:
mysql -u root -p
Enter your MariaDB root password and hit enter. Once you are logged in to your database, you will need to create a database for Backdrop:
Run the following command to create a database:
MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE backdropdb;
Next, create a new database user and provide the appropriate privileges to your database user over the database you have created.
`MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON backdropdb.* TO 'bduser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
Next, run the following command to immediately apply the changes on the database privileges:
MariaDB [(none)]> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Next, exit from the Mysql with the following command:
MariaDB [(none)]> \q
Once your database is configured, you can proceed to the next step.
You can download the latest stable version of the Backdrop from it's official website or GitHub repository.
Run the following command to download the Backdrop from GitHub:

Although data persistence is almost always a fundamental element of applications, Node.js has no native integration with databases. Everything is delegated to third-party libraries to be included manually, in addition to the standard APIs. Although MongoDB and other non-relational databases are the most common choice with Node because if you...
