I have just leased a new server and it has centos 7.2 installed and seems to have mysql installed and I am trying to install a piece of firewall software and get the error message... package MySQL-server is not installed package MySQL51-server is not installed package MySQL55-server is not installed MySQL56-server-5.6.29-1.cp1148.x86_64 Error: MySQL is not supported on EL7. Redhat has retired MySQL 5 in favor of Mariadb. Recommend using Mariadb 5 or above. Exiting... The software vendor has unhelpfully said "Yes, you will need to switch to the database supported by the OS vendor, in your case that is MariaDB. Redhat has replaced mysql with mariadb. Mariadb is supported with cpanel". What happens if I switch to MariaDB? Is mysql gone? Can I run my wordpress sites as usual? Whats going on?????
