    Hi, I am having a compatibility issue between my local/test server setup vs the target server. ​ My working environment uses MariaDB 10 and the target server of my client uses MySQL 8. I always migrate the websites I make in WordPress with Duplicator but this time it throws compatibility issues for obvious reasons. ​ I am a web designer, I don’t have advanced knowledge in server administrator and I don’t have access to the WHM of the target server and my client says that there is no way to change MySQL 8 to MariaDB. ​ What can I do? Is there any way to migrate the database to the new server with MySQL 8? Or is it better to do a WordPress installation from scratch on the target server and then migrate the data and settings manually? ​ And beyond that: Is it convenient to use MySQL 8 since MariaDB is almost the standard and is the option chosen by most hosting providers? Thank you in advance! – by /hq/elarturus – –
