    Please consider the future of socialengine releases to work on those servers that are using Mariadb. I have a feeling in the future many servers will be using mariadb as default out of the box.

    When posting feature requests, in order to be considered they need to follow the stickied posting guidelines. Please have a look and please put all details requested in order to have a fully detailed feature request. However, please note that there are pluses and minuses to both Maria and Mysql. Lots of discussion online about both. Some like one, some like the other. I'm not saying we won't consider it but we have a lot to consider for improving things. Here's a good article as it lists a few options as well as pluses and minuses of each option. https://opensource.com/article/19/1/open-source-databases
