I'm running WHM 11.50 (EA 3.32.3) with a combined PHP/Tomcat setup. Everything is currently working, but in order to get connections working to the MariaDB 10.0.21 server, I had to swap out the installed "easy-mysql-connector-java" package (version 5.1.25) with MariaDB's "mariadb-java-client" JAR file. This got our database connectivity issues fixed, but I now get a daily email from rpmcheck telling me that the easy-mysql-connector-java is "broken." This is obviously because I simply replaced files because I was in a rush at the time. Is there a "right" way to update the MySQL JDBC driver installed by EasyApache? And really, is there any reason EasyApache doesn't just use the MariaDB driver for everything, since it's binary compatible with older MySQL versions?
