Will there be any concern if I upgrade my current WordPress Database server from Centos 7 Mariadb 5.5 to Centos 8 Mariadb 10.3?


Currently I am using a dedicated web server connected via private network to a dedicated database server to run WordPress. The database server is running on Centos 7 and mariadb 5.5.
I am considering to upgrade the web server to centos 8 and mariadb 10.3.


  1. Is it advisable to upgrade from mariadb 5.5 to mariadb 10.3 for wordpress? Would there be compatibility issues for existing WordPress database? What are the areas of concern I should be aware of.
  2. Is there a performance advantage for upgrading centos 7 mariadb 5.5 to centos 8 mariadb 10.3 for wordpress? Or I should stick to centos 7 mariadb 5.5 to avoid unnecessary trouble?
