Rex. MySQL being defaulted to v8 is the new default from now on? No more asking about choosing MariaDB, ever? Or does this happens only on AL8?Right - you'd have to specify MariaDB before you even performed the cPanel install if you want that to happen.
Ok, if the installer must not prompt for options, then make it exit if run with no params, being --mysql or --mariadb mandatory. Thus, that would be a great opportunity to provide awareness of this database situation to those who were unable to reach the docs before actually upgrading to new OS. Think that there are still a lot of minor hosting providers billing every OS reload. So this option would help people save TIME... AND MONEY. And THAT is a feature my friend ;-)Alright, I have a couple thoughts on this.
I did reach out to the database team and they are aware of a need for *something* - what that something is hasn't been decided just yet, but a way to select the version at install time without need to manually pre-configure files would be ideal for sure.
What we aren't going to do is change the installer to prompt the user as the install has to be able to run completely unattended.
I do like the option of having a "--mysql" or "--mariadb" flag that is optional, as that would allow people to just run the installer normal or they could specify the option if they don't want the default.
That's where things are at this point - the team is aware and has been looking into it for a bit, but nothing has been officially decided just yet. For now, using the installation customization tool ahead of time is the only solution.
This is quite annoying especially after doing a full install, setting up easyapache, and then finding out that natively MySQL 8 was installed and there's no easy way to use MariaDB instead which is what all my other servers I was going to transfer accounts from are using :facepalm:
Completely empty server with no databases or anything.
