Upgrade MariaDB from 5.5 to 10.2

Hi Guys,

Can i ask your help to updgrade MariaDB from 5.5 to 10.2 please?

I've read some posts about MariaDB upgrade but it seems to involve custom modifications that could break some stuff in Virtualmin.

If you can help me with that, this will be really appreciate.

We don't really recommend doing such upgrades, and install packages that are not distributed with current OS, and unfortunately, we cannot provide any help in doing that.

It's outside of the scope of Virtualmin support. Sorry.

However, if you have a chance to easily roll back made changes, for example, from a snapshot, then it might be safe to try.
