What is MariaDB?

MariaDB is a fork of MySQL.

The database structure and indexes of MariaDB are the same as MySQL. This makes MariaDB a backward compatible, drop-in replacement for MySQL.

We currently run MariaDB version 10.2.29

To check the version of MariaDB:

  1. Head to Manage Hosting, then phpMyAdmin.
  2. Select the database in the left-hand panel.  
  3. Select the Query tab at the top.
  4. Type the query: SELECT VERSION(); and select Go.
  5. The version of MariaDB will then be outputted.
