MariaDB® support is coming in 11.48

In order to provide you with greater flexibility and more database options, we will be adding MariaDB 10.0 database support to cPanel & WHM version 11.48 in the first quarter of 2015.

MariaDB acts as a MySQL® replacement, and all interface and API function calls that refer to MySQL will work seamlessly with MariaDB, too.

Please note that if you upgrade to MariaDB 10.0, you cannot revert to MySQL. The system cannot safely perform downgrades, and it considers MariaDB to be an upgrade from MySQL.

Also, please note that some of the interfaces will still display MySQL after you install MariaDB. In future releases, we will update the user interface to explicitly reference MariaDB if you decide to upgrade to MariaDB.


I write things. Sometimes, I edit things. Then, I publish things.

    How will this affect those already using MariaDB 5.5? Could they cleanly use the feature to go to MariaDB 10?

    That’s great news. Since they changed their version numbering convention, it caused all kinds of problems where other utilities expected the SQL server or client version to begin with a 5 – now you’ve committed to get this to work, tools like EasyApache will receive your usual rigorous testing to make sure that these things aren’t a problem. +1 and thanks in advance!
