Here at Anu, we care deeply about the security of our customer’s data so therefore regularly upgrade our software to newer versions to ensure we are receiving important patches.
We will be upgrading MariaDB on ams2-c7-1 to 10.2 on March 7th, 2021. This will ensure we continue to obtain security fixes until 2022 when we will review and upgrade again as necessary.
Common applications such as WordPress, Magento Drupal and others will already be fully compatible with this so we expect the upgrade to go smoothly and most customers will not to have to do anything.
If you have bespoke applications or if you run legacy versions of open source software then you may need to check if everything will be compatible. You can read more about all changes and improvements, including any breaking changes on the official MariaDB website: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/changes-improvements-in-mariadb-102/
If you have any questions or need any support on this matter, do not hesitate to email email@example.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
