    Hello Haeussler,

    I would like to say that it is not recommended to replace the database server shipped by an OS vendor with another one, for example, replace MariaDB with MySQL, as this might lead to various issues afterwards. If it is necessary to perform such an operation this should be done manually at your own risk.

    Hello Mikhail Shport,

    i do not quite understand.
    We did a "distupgrade" with Plesk from Ubuntu 16.xLTS to Ubuntu 18.xLTS. That was successful, but the database stayed with MySQL(5.7).
    Now your (Plesk) instructions for DistUpgrade from Ubuntu 18.x LTS to 20.x LTS say that this would only be possible with MariaDB, but MySQL (5.7) is still running here. Hence my request here.
