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.
