    Hey folks,

    I am configuring new server and wondering is it time to configure it with MariaDB instead Mysql.

    It seems feature request of official switching won't be here anytime soon.

    There is a guide in a cpanel blog about migration: How to replace MySQL with MariaDB in 11.36 | cPanel Blog

    And more comprehensive in another forum: How to replace MySQL with MariaDB - AYKsolutions Forum

    The main problems seems to be:
    • You may need to manually recompile PHP to see Mysql (and everytime you update via EasyApache)
    • MariaDB updates are not automated, some even require to do clean install.
    • Not clear if future Cpanel updates won't mess up mariaDB installation.

    Could anybody comment on this?
    Have you switched already?
    What are the problems?
    Are there noticeable improvements?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, Michael,

    It's marked as planned. Could we get more information about the progress?

    There is no new or additional information to report at this time. Updates will be provided on that feature request as more information becomes available.

    Thank you.

    We have a Feature Requests area for this sort of post, and there is already one posted as mentioned. Another poll serves no purpose here on the forums.
