Database server upgrade

Post by </Solidjeuh> »

Hello,

I just upgraded to "MySQL(i) 10.4.12-MariaDB". I came from "5.5.x".
But what does it do exactly? Are there any changes in speed or performance?
I searched google, but could not find a good explanation on why you should upgrade, and what changed etc...

Hope someone can give me some more info... :D

System: Linux 3.10.0
Web Server: Apache
PHP version: 7.4.3
Database server: MySQL(i) 10.4.12-MariaDB
Operating system: Redhat

Yeah, I wondered the same thing, and other than a great song from Santana, I have no idea, really. :lol:

PHP is more like a no brainer in terms of security.

So scrolling through all that I'm assuming it's just better. And that's all I need to know. :lol:

What is a changelog? It tracks per release (speak: version) what has changed since the last release. Every better software has such a thing or at least release notes, see In overall the sense in upgrading is to extend getting supported and getting new features. The sense of updating is to get bug fixes.

If your question was about the difference between MySQL and MariaDB: the former is owned by ORACLE (and based on your experience you never want to touch products from them again), the latter is protected by the GPLicense.
