Description

MariaDB 10.3 is reaching EOL (May 2023) and documentation should be updated.

Requirements page should be updated to:

MySQL version 5.7 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.6 or greater.

MariaDB changed its roadmap and is launching numerous versions for testing / development, and currently the only LTS versions are 10.6 and 10.11.

Hosting Handbook has been updated with this new information.

Thanks for the ticket!

Since the Hosting handbook mentions MariaDB 10.4 as the minimum recommended version, I think we could do the same in core for now. That would also match what was done for 10.3 last year in [53435] and [54069].

In 55665:

Site Health: Bump the recommended MariaDB version to 10.4.

MariaDB 10.3 reaches EOL (“End of Life”) in May 2023. The recommended minimum is bumped to 10.4 for now.

References:

Follow-up to [52420], [53435], [54069], [54076].

Props JavierCasares.
See #58158.

Keeping the ticket open for now to also update the Requirements page.

There is a new main theme on WordPress.org, so commits like [meta11866] would no longer work.

This appears to be the process to follow:

MariaDb 10.3 is now eol (23th may 2023) so it would be great if the https://wordpress.org/about/requirements/ could be updated.
