The current website is using Nova 2.4.5 (DS9) and is set for PHP 5.4.45 on a GoDaddy Windows server.
Here's what I did:
I went into phpMyAdmin and exported the SQL database. I installed Nova 2.4.5 (DS9) onto my HostDime Linux server.
I then tried 2 different things:
1. Importing the database from the GoDaddy server...which gave me this error (and the database wasn't imported at all, though I did delete it and create a new one just to be safe)
"#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 4 "
2. Went through the normal install process for Nova using a new database. When I did this, I got FAILED on the Verify Server Requirements.
Database Version Required: 4.1, - Database Version Actual: 10.1.21-MariaDB Result: FAILED
When I did option 2 and continued anyway, I was able to install Nova.
It seems that Nova is having issues with MariaDB. I put in a ticket with my hosting company and as far as they're aware, there's no issue on their end and they suggested I contact Anodyne regarding compatibility with MariaDB.
So, is there something I'm missing which is why MariaDB is a problem with Nova? Is there anything I can do so I can import the Database from the original server?
Please let me know ASAP - I'll lose access to the original server in the next 2 weeks, so I need to get this resolved ASAP.

Since the issue you had was with an import of a MySQL database into a MariaDB database, it makes me think there's actually an issue with the SQL that was generated from the old server. Did you look at the line the error message pointed out?
It's been a LONG time since I've searched SQL code and I'm not sure what kind of query I'd need to look at that line. If you tell me, I can check it.
Here's the entire error message I get when attempting to import (I tried doing a new export and checked an option to make it compatible with MYSQL40 just to try something different):
-- Database: `kersare_legnova`
CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS `kersare_legnova` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET ;
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 4
So, I could try what you suggested, but I need to know how.
(I've tried doing this with a completely blank/new database and with one that already exists, by the way, and get the same error.)
