    Hi Buddies

    Can we use Percona 5.6 or 5.7 on a webserver (in multiserver setup)?

    OS: Debian 10
    Master server: apache + mariadb 10.3
    Mail server: mariadb 10.3
    Web server: Apache + percona 5.7

    Is it possible without any bugs? Any body tried?

    Thanks :)

    yes you can.
    MySQL, MariaDB, and percona are currently interchangeable.
    although percona appears to be moving further away from the standard MySQL, so not sure how long that will continue to be the case., that said, they are still claiming to be a direct drop in replacement for MySQL 8.0, so it looks like it should be ok for a good few years yet.

    that said, you're looking at mariadb10.3 on the master and mail servers, and percona on the web server. what's the thinking behind that? I would have thought standardising around the same software/versions would have been preferable.
