Re: Upgrading From MySQL 5.6 to MariaDB 10.1

Hi there,

I'm not seeing any concise information in the MariaDB docs about the
recommended upgrade plan from MySQL 5.6 to MariaDB 10.1. Should I
install MariaDB 10.0 and then 10.1?  Or can I run right to 10.1?

I asked about this in depth about a month ago here:


I didn't get any reply, perhaps because it was too detailed or was too much asking for an "official" reply. But it looks very much like mysql_upgrade can be run against a 5.x database straight to 10.1.

I'm running an older version of Ubuntu (12.04 Precise).  Looking at the
repo, it looks like I can stick with Precise, and hand that upgrade
later.  Or are there recommended min version of Ubuntu I should hit first?
