MariaDB 10.5 support

B. Kp shared this idea 13 months ago
Planned

As a Database Administrator, I would like to have support for MariaDB 10.5 so that I can upgrade my existing database server.

============

I know it's still in BETA at the moment, but I want to make sure this request is logged and that it can be implemented as soon as it's possible.

10.5 will bring several improvements (https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/mariadb-server-105/), as always, and some of them are of my interest. :)

The issues that have been experienced with recent MariaDB releases have caused notable concern in terms of impact for our customers. As a result of this, we are spending some time investigating our options which is in part why it’s taken an extended amount of time to deliver the next MariaDB upgrade. At this time we plan to skip MariaDB 10.4 and begin offering MariaDB 10.5 in 2021.

It's actually currently in ALPHA stage, not even in BETA, but I surely want to see it implemented once it's stable.

Still waiting for the 10.4 stable which is already available.

Yes you are right but it's in beta now https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-1051-release-notes/ :-)

I would kindly appreciate it if cPanel adds support for both 10.4 and 10.5 so we don't have to wait for 10.5 as long as we are waiting for 10.4 now...

MariaDB 10.5 is now RC with 10.5.3. cPanel really needs to speed up as it does not even support 10.4.

Can someone from cpanel let us know if you plan to support 10.4 still or just skip it and go straight to 10.5?

Hey cPanel,

Any plans to implement this yet? I think its essential now, given the delay in supporting 10.4!

We are investigating skipping MariaDB 10.4 and going straight to 10.5, but this is still in the idea phase.

I support that. There is no need to go through 10.4 when 10.5 is out. In fact, 10.4 is 1 year old version.

Hi,

any update on this?

Why do I have to use a version that dates back to 2018? I want to use the full potential of my server. It should not take that long. I have seen two pricing updates from cPanel but no MariaDB updates...

Will you do it in version 94?

Oh come on! We knew that it was not coming in 2020 but telling that you'll begin offering it in 2021 means nothing. When? Q4? Better be Q1...

Can you elaborate on these concerns? Shouldn't it be up to each server admin to determine if the upgrade is right for them? Does the database running on the server affect how cPanel or WHM works? If that's true, we really need to get to a place where multiple mysql/mariadb instances can exist on a server simultaneously so that you're issues don't cause me issues and vice versa. I'm not sure if that's something cPanel can fix, but it's something I'd strongly recommend using you're market influence to push for since it's in your best financial interest to not have a system where people start looking elsewhere as a means to upgrade. (Not to mention that an sql selector per account would be a super rad function on it's own)
