    MySQL or MariaDB Upgrade - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    This reads contradictory to me vis-a-vis CentOS and CloudLinux - have version numbers been left out?
    MUST run CentOS ... to upgrade from MySQL to MariaDB
    CANNOT upgrade to MariaDB on a server that uses CentOS

    Hello @ottdev,

    The version requirement applies to each OS listed before the the number 6 in this sentence:

    It's another way of stating CentOS 6 or higher, CloudLinux™ 6 or higher, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 or higher.

    Would you find it helpful to see this information displayed a different way, such as in a chart?

    Thanks!

    "CentOS 6 or higher, CloudLinux™ 6 or higher, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 or higher."
    This way is best.

    Hello @ottdev,

    I've opened a case with our documentation to inquire about making a change to clarify the OS version requirements. I'll update this thread with the outcome as soon as more information is available.

    Thank you.
