Hey there! What version of MySQL are you running on the machine?
@TechBill - thanks for that. That would apply to your system then - once you're on MySQL 8, you can't switch to MariaDB.
If I create a new machine with cPanel and MariaDB .. Will I be able to export and import DB from MySQL 8 to a new machine with MariaDB?While I'm sure anything is possible, it probably wouldn't end well, and would cause issues. There's some pretty major internal structure changes between those versions, which is why we made it not possible.
You could always create a new machine that had MariaDB from the start using the details here:

sorry for not specifying correctly. What I meant is that in a fresh install there is no option for MariaDB it’s only MySQLFrom our docs:
"You cannot upgrade MySQL 8 to MariaDB 10.x due to incompatibilities between these versions. For more information, read MariaDB’s documentation. However, system administrators can choose either MySQL or MariaDB during the cPanel & WHM installation process. For more information, read our Installation Guide."
