    My server is currently using Maria 5.6 and I am wanting to upgrade to V 10. But there are quite a few sites on the server that can only run php 5.3. Will upgrading Maria cause problems with those sites?

    I'm getting different answers and no one seems to know for sure. I've checked the Maria site but their doc's don't cover this, at least that I can find.

    Hello @panit,

    Can you confirm that the system currently uses MySQL 5.6? If so, MariaDB 10.0 is a drop-in replacement for MySQL version 5.6, so you shouldn't have any problems with your scripts after that upgrade.

    Thank you.
