Good day all,

I was wondering if anyone have done a OpenVas deployment on Ubuntu 18.04 with a mysql/mariadb database rather than the standard sqlite or PostgressDB.

The reason is that our company uses a standard platform to deploy all our Open source tools and the preferred database is mysql/mariadb.

Anyone else have this requirement or if it is possible , please let me know .


Please note that we can´t support any packets here, i would suggest to talk to the maintainer of the packet for this.

At the moment there are no plans at Greenbone to support Mysql due to limited functions.
