    hi there,

    Just wondering if anyone has any insights of upgrading php and MySQL on ispconfig centos 7 servers.

    I'm trying to use magento and it won't support php less than version 5.6... I managed to build php 5.6 and 7.0 as additional versions and apply them. Now magento is happy with the PHP version but when it comes to MySQL it is asking for at least version 5.6.0.

    I setup a new virtual machine to install the latest ispconfig 3.1 on centos 7.2 and am faced with the same issue - trying to update mariadb version has not had any success.

    If anyone could shed some light on a safe way to update MySQL/MariaDB to at least version 5.6.0.

    Kind regards

    Hi florian,

    Thanks for your response - is it possible to upgrade MySQL on a production box?

    I managed to add some seperate mariaDB repos and installed MariaDB 10 on a fresh install, I'm happy to reformat my 4 server multi server setup but will probably wait for release of ispconfig 3.1.

    Just a quick follow up;
    I managed to install MariaDB 10.1 using the MariaDB repos.

    During the ISPConfig Perfect Server tutorial (Before installing MySQL!)

    nano -w /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo
    Put the following code in

    # MariaDB 10.1 CentOS repository list - created 2016-09-13 10:34 UTC
    name = MariaDB
    baseurl =
    Then use the yum installer to install the later version of MariaDB
