The support officially has been dropped for MySQL/Mariadb.
However, it is still possible using OSM 0.6 API.

Tested with MariaDB 10.3.22 and 10.4.12 using Osmosis Version 0.47.4

History I found an (the?) old mysql schema on Brett Henderson's Homepage and started from there. If you are interested in the changes I made, take a look into the problems and the history of git repository.

Import osm.bz2 into mariadb

Get the latest version of my mysql schema script based on Brett Henderson's work

$ wget

Create the schema using the sql script

mysql -u osm -posm -h localhost < mariadb-osm.sql

Read data and populate database

./bin/osmosis --read-xml file="andorra-latest.osm.bz2" --write-apidb-0.6 host="" dbType="mysql" database="osm" user="osm" password="osm" validateSchemaVersion=no

OSM uses Fixed Precision Integer for the geographical location. Instead of persisting 53,0749415 as a floating point number in the database, it will be persisted as 530749415. The precision of the floating point number is defined as 7 decimal places, so you have to multiply or divide with 10^7.
