  • MariaDB for vbulletin 5

    Currently running vbulletin 5 (and one vbulletin 4 forum) on MariaDB 10.3 going to upgrade to MariaDB 10.4 to see if this helps with a certain issue having at a mybb forum on the same VPS. Will MariaDB 10.4 be fine for the vb5 and vb4 forums?

    We don't actually test MariaDB. We take their advertisement as a drop in replacement for MySQL at face value. If they deviate from that, then things can break as vBulletin is written exclusively for MySQL's SQL variant.

    MariaDB tends to be a year or two behind MySQL releases. Is 10.4 based on MySQL 5.7 or 8.X? We support both of those. However, some of the database field names in the software have become reserved words in MySQL 8.0.X so you might have problems with vBulletin 4. We have deployed workarounds in vBulletin 5.5.6 for these changes. That said, I haven't looked at the release notes for MariaDB 10.4 to give a conclusive answer.

      I upgraded to MariaDB 10.6.5 and encountered no issues with my bulletin 5.6.5 and 4.2.5 sites.
