    Hi,

    we need to install a Debian 10 server with Mysql 8 daemon (instead the MariaDb).
    It's there a way to do it with ispconfig? Because as far as i can see only MariaDb it's officially supported (as officially I mean included on the Perfect Server installation).

    Thank you.
    Kind Regards

    It is possible to use MySQL 8 instead of MariaDB, but we recommend using MariaDB. Any particular reason to use MySQL 8?

    It's just a customer request. No idea why they want mysql 8 instead mariadb.
    Btw, what is the correct procedure to migrate from maria to mysql 8?

    Do you want to switch to MySQL 8 on a existing server, or on a server that is to be installed?

    "on a server that is to be installed"

    I have not done it myself, but you can leave out the mariaDB steps and just follow the MySQL 8 install steps following their instructions.

    But, I would advice you to use MariaDB. MySQL 8 is compatible, but we don't test it and issues with it don't have a high priority, so it is better not to use it on production systems.
