[BUSINESS] mysql upgrade question

Post by josline » March 1st, 2019, 10:20 am

My server sent me an email (automatic) just now, it says login to cpanel to upgrade the mysql version.

So I asked my host techs what I have to do they were nice about it said I have


'Currently installed: 5.6.43
you want us to upgrade it to MySQL 5.7 or MariaDB 10.3 "


Not sure since I have no idea what the latter one is, what do you say i tell them to upgrade it to.

If you are already using mysql stick to the upgrade for it

Your current version will not expire till 2021 so no rush think about which new version you want added to the server

Upgrading might cause some scripts not to work, check what version your scripts require

In all my time I have always used mysql and see no reason to switch now.

MariaDB is not new, it has been around since the first release in 2009

Yet most webmasters automatically think of mysql for sql databases, go figure.
