    Raspbian Lite or Snappy Ubuntu Core work quite well. As for the database, either MySQL or MariaDB is fine.


    If you want to manage the database through your browser instead of the command line you can install a web server (like Apache) and PHP, then use for example phpMyAdmin.


    I did try Snappy Ubuntu Core but never got past the first login and my post never got answered at Ubuntu Forum:
    login incorrect - Ubuntu Core 16 on RPi2



    Sure, it's just a run of the mill database server.


    Right now I am running OSMC on a RPi3 with MySQL installed on it, and being my MySQL server and run texturecache.py to update the database without a monitor. Then I have 3 other RPi2 running LibreELEC and getting the movice/tv show database off of the RPi3. But Thinking if there is better option(s) or not.


    Thank you.


    Instead of putting the mysql database on devices that aren't meant for it, like routers or media players, I would suggest to buy a cheap RPi and turn it into a dedicated database server.




    Thank you for your suggestion.
    I was wondering if you could recommend a good combination of OS and mysql solution!?
    I have a spare RPi3 that I could make as a server. Isn't best to compile the mysql myself on an OS, like OSMC, or should I run LibreELEC and install vpeter 's LAMP addon?!


    Thank you in advance.
