MySql or Mariadb

Question

Because of our (ongoing, but hopefully getting less) ddos attack, I am abviously looking at loads of stuff - that I know very little about

We have a VPS running centos 6.1 on a WHM / Cpanel system

Just had a message saying

MySQL 5.6 5.7 For instructions on how to upgrade “MySQL”, visit https://go.cpanel.net/mysqlup

 

So when i clicked it says that really mariadb is the way to go

 

So questions are, will mariadb be OK for thirtybees or should I stick with MySQL? 

Is there any reason why I should not upgrade at all? Is it safe to upgrade MySql?

If we do upgrade do I need to tell our software anything (thirtybees, a couple of offline prestashops, a couple of wordpress sites)

All went well. I did an upgrade to mysql 5.7 first to to bring it up to date, then on to the mariadb. Little or no difference in speed that I can determine, but at least we are now on recommended software

We use Maria too, but I think the benefit is offers is little in this situation. It is faster, but we are only talking like say 5% or so faster.

Thanks. On a slow site, 5% can help. Any dangers with allowing the upgrade to go ahead?

I would make sure you have recent backups. There is always a danger, but cpanel has made the process pretty safe. I would still make recent backups though, bugs do happen.
