    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.

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