    Hey there! I think you're just misreading the page as it's version 10.11 that we have available, not 11 :D

    Doh! I was clearly having a dyslexic senior moment! I MEANT to type 10.11 not 11. Sorry! I've correct my typos now.

    That's an option too! Are you running MySQL on these servers already? If so, we consider MariaDB a downgrade, so you wouldn't have a way to get that option.

    Really? You consider MariaDB versions to be downgrades from (similar age) MySQL versions? How "official" is that position? Just curious :) acquisition of Sun Microsystems by Oracle, some of the senior engineers who were working on the development of MySQL felt that there was a conflict of interest between MySQL and Oracle"s commercial database - Oracle Database Server. As a result, these engineers created a fork of the MySQL code base and started their own organization. This is how MariaDB was born." All our servers moved to MariaDB, inspired by the above.

    One thing I can confirm for sure, is that MariaDB 10.11 is available with Experimental support in cPanel 114. So if you don't see that option, you're likely on version 110 or 112:

    I think the wording on that page just isn't ideal. I believe the "long-term" plan would be to make MariaDB the default, but at this time servers get installed with MySQL 8. If you have MySQL 8 installed, you can't upgrade to MariaDB, and the only way to get MariaDB on a new system is to use the installation customization options here:
