I'd say that it would be transparent for many, perhaps most. However, on one particular server that I manage for a client, the client had a ton of old Joomla 1.0, 1.5 and 2.5 sites. For whatever reason, after conversion to MariaDB, I had issues with some of the old Joomla sites....and this 'should' be transparent to your clients?
On four servers, I never had a single issue performing the MySQL 5.6 to MySQL 10.0 upgrade. I did have a couple of small problems related to ancient Joomla sites that were migrated from a MySQL 5.6 server to a MariaDB 10.0 server -- see my previous response to Verdon.Any issues with upgrading to Maria DB or was the upgrade pretty seamless?
Anything that can be done to force the hand of people running ancient Joomla can't be all bad I haven't seen an issue with Wordpress sites, but I think I only have one Wordpress account running something ancient like 2.x -- and I don't see any problems with the site after it had already been migrated.Hmmm, so switching to MariaDb might help push those last few holdouts on upgrading their Joomla sites.
I wonder if it messes with some of the ancient old Wordpress sites also.
Insane, isn't it? Truth be told, for a long time I continued running an XP instance (Inside Windows 7 or Vista with that XP Mode thing). When I switched to Win10, that was no longer available and I had to suck it up.Keep in mind that many people refuse to upgrade. I had a call last month that was asking for help with their email.... in Outlook Express! It's 2016, and he's proud to still be on XP with Outlook Express. Proud, as if all the advancements in tech and security are all just marketing gimmicks.
