    I do not know which way I should go on this topic. So I will like to get everyone's input here.

    I know for one thing. I am the type person that is want high security, speed, performance, lots of features and all around functionality that will work with everything or at least almost everything.

    MySQL 5.5

    MySQL 5.6

    MariaDB 10.0

    Also it say's "After you upgrade MySQL/MariaDB, there is no supported way to downgrade to the previous version" so if I do upgrade I need to make sure that I am making the right choice.

    Hello :)

    You will find several reasons why users prefer MariaDB in it's feature request:

    MariaDB support | cPanel Feature Requests

    The feature is already implemented, but the comments section contain user opinions that you may find helpful.

    Thank you.

    Thank you Michael

    My concern is that if I switch to MariaDB is sites stop working and users start complaining that there sites are down.

    Does phpMyAdmin work with MariaDB?

    I've upgraded a good 50+ systems from MySQL 5.6 -> MariaDB 10 using the supported cPanel method and there have been no problems, other than one customer who was using Oxwall. The script checked for MySQL version 5.0 or higher, but didn't seem to recognize the existence of MariaDB

    phpMyAdmin does indeed work with MariaDB.

    I have now MariaDB 10.0 running on one of my servers and seems to be functioning great and WHMCS loads up fine.

    Now I will do slowly do the rest of the servers.

    Thank you cPanel staff
