    Hi,

    Has anyone switched to MariaDB for Shared hosting from MySQL 5.6?

    Are there any major issues that could cause problems?

    Any real benefits in changing?

    Should I do it now or wait? :)

    I'm about to do mine, just backing up cpanel accounts and server configuration files.

    I will post back, once done.

    It worked fine, clients websites wont connect to the databases for like 15 seconds. Then they all came back to life.

    [mysql restarted successfully.[0m]
    MariaDB upgrade completed successfully

    Then run Easy-Apache after.

    Might want to remember the upgrade to MariaDB will fail if you have CloudLinux MySQL govenor installed.

    Will first do it in test environment a few times then see how it works.

    No issues. Performance wise, ram reduced slightly but will monitor it over time.
