we know in rpm packages and in Centos and now Alma and rocky that preinstalled we have mariadb 10.3 and with a simple command we could enable Mariadb 10.5
sudo dnf module list mariadb
sudo dnf module disable mariadb:10.3
sudo dnf module enable mariadb:10.5
Now if we want to upgrade lets say to latest 10.8.xx we need to create a mariadb.repo as below
sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/mariadb.repo
And then try to upgrade! It works in ubuntu but in Alma/Rocky we have errors when yum update is performed
Even if I take it step by step and remove each package that conflicts with previous installation I still have to remove some mysql packages and then phpmyadmin becomes unavailable!
I even tried to purge all previous mysql, mariadb installations and install 10.8.3 from scratch with the same results!
We need to have a manual guide to upgrade to the latest Mariadb version in Alma/Rocky without messing the CyberPanel installation! The guide I’ve read inisde the community forum doesnt work now and needs to be updated
