I have a problem and need a solution please help I'm in the middle of this.
I ordered a new server to transfer all clients to. due to wanting to upgrade to cloudlinux os 8
I got up to updating MySQL to MariaDB and there is no MariaDB on the new server at the moment I have CENTOS 8.4 and Cpanel v98.0.6
the old server has MariaDB 10.3
I do see an upgrade for MariaDB 10.5 on the old server but I did not do it .

Can I install MariaDB 10.5 on the new server manually and Cpanel will live with it?
Please quote step by step

Also, I want to add that I will be using the transfer tool

thanks
Mitch

Hey there! On CentOS or CloudLinux 8, MySQL version 8 is installed by default. In order to install MariaDB, you would want to use the details outlined here:


Those would be configured before cPanel is installed, and the installation will see the configuration file and apply the correct MySQL version.

Let me know if that helps!
