Add support to MySQL 8


Would you consider enabling MySQL 8 support instead of MariaDB? Version 8 is much more powerful and has many features missing on MariaDB


  • Full text indexing on json column. Still not present in maria
  • Read this article written directly by MariaDB. They themselves say that the indexes on JSON data are absent and are resorting to a fallback with virtual columns, highly non performing.

    It's MySQL that should be installed by default, not MariaDB, which is a more hailed fork than it should be. MySQL 8 beats Maria to performance and functionality. By far.
  • MariaDB will be installed by default on latest Red Hat Enterprise/CentOS/Fedora/Debian distributions. Also there is a difference between the two .

    The main difference between the two is that while you receive the full-featured package when using MariaDB, that’s not the case with MySQL. The community edition doesn’t include features like the Threadpool, which can have a significant impact on the database and query performance.

    Its why many open source panels & os adopted mariadb as default, if you insist on using mysql 8, you can try making it work by yourself.
  • Even on cpanel there is no support for mysql 8 yet & if you decide to migrate to mariadb there wont be a simple way to revert back.
  • ...but, not the case any longer. cPanel supports MySQL8 and it's *really* great. as well, it's noticeably faster.
