I have a Joomla! website that I set up myself some years ago (without being a web developer). I have upgraded to Joomla 3.8.8. I asked my provider about the minimum server requirements following the upgrade. One is MySQL 5.5.3. The provider has 10.0.35-MariaDB on their server. They believe it is compatible with MySQL 5.5.3 but wish to have this confirmed. Can anyone confirm this?

Minimum MySQL requirements for Joomla 3.8.8 is MySQL 5.1, however 5.5.3 or greater is recommended.
downloads.joomla.org/technical-requirements

Joomla 4 will required MySQL 5.5.3 or greater
docs.joomla.org/Potential_backward_compa...y_issues_in_Joomla_4

So yes Joomla is compatible with what your hosting provider is currently offering.

Hi,

a quick Google and this item has the details for Compatibility between Maria and MySQL;

mariadb.com/kb/en/library/mariadb-vs-mysql-compatibility/

Specific to your question Maria 10.0 is compatible with MySQL 5.6 which is later than the minimum requirement so you should be okay.
