As this ticket is dependent upon the meta ticket, need to temporarily skip the Tests_External_HTTP_Basic::test_readme_mariadb_version() test. Why? The test is checking EOL and fails.

Note: Revert the temporary skip once the version is bumped.

This ticket was mentioned in PR #2741 on WordPress/wordpress-develop by hellofromtonya.

Build/Test Tools: Temporarily skip MariaDB version test.


MariaDB version 10.2 is no longer supported as of 23 May 2022. This commit temporarily skips the version test. Why? To avoid test failures during this period, i.e. until the version is bummped and readme.html file changed.

See #55791, Meta5999.

Tests: Improve the assertions in recommended MySQL and MariaDB version tests.

Comparing human-readable dates instead of numeric timestamps gives identical results, but makes the message more clear in case of failure.

Site Health: Bump the recommended MySQL and MariaDB versions.

  • MySQL 5.6 has reached EOL (“End of Life”) in February 2021. The recommended minimum is bumped to 5.7 for now.
  • MariaDB 10.2 has reached EOL in May 2022. The recommended minimum is bumped to 10.3 for now.

This commit brings the Site Health recommendations in line with readme.html.


  • Adding two unit tests to ensure the SQL server versions recommended by Site Health match readme.html.
  • Consistently declaring the recommended and required versions as the WP_Site_Health class properties.
  • Renaming some pre-existing private properties for clarity.

In 54076:

Tests: Correct the tests for Site Health SQL versions matching readme.html.

These tests should check the initial $mysql_recommended_version and $mariadb_recommended_version properties, as WP_Site_Health::prepare_sql_data() redefines the former with the latter to simplify further processing if MariaDB is used, leading to a test failure:

Failed asserting that two strings are identical.
