Do you or do you intend to support MariaDB?

Easiest way to go from MySQL to MySQLi for older systems
Thanks Scott
Things are looking up for MariaDB. I just saw this on cPanel's website Q&A:

The work needed to make cPanel compatible with the official MariaDB RPMS is nearing completion. As part of the update, we will also be updating the MySQL 5.0 and MySQL 5.1 compatibility libraries to ensure they work with MariaDB & the version of EasyApache that is currently installed on each respective cPanel server.

Attached are some early screenshots of the implementation of the integration with the MySQL Upgrade Tool in WHM. Please note that these screenshots are an older version of the implementation, and they have not been reviewed by our Documentation team.

The screenshots have been updated with last night's development build.

UPDATE 10/31: Development of this feature is near or at completion and this functionality is in the final stages of QA. This feature is targeted at 11.48.

UPDATE 10/31: This feature has been merged into 11.48.
What has Inmotion Hosting's experience been with MariaDB? Is supporting it a logistics problem or are there other reasons?
Hello, Thank you for your question regarding MariaDB. At this time, MariaDB can only be installed on VPS and Dedicated servers. There may be a small one-time installation fee, they will quote a price at the time of your request. If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, John-Paul
