Upgrade of MariaDB to latest version
Please support latest versions of MariaDB
It's time to get in here and update us on the status of this, @Cloudways.
Over a year waiting on a definitive answer to an important update isn't OK. The last mention in the Cloudways FB group was for "a few weeks" and that was two months ago.
We need a better process for keeping these kinds of requests updated.
If you want folks to choose Cloudways, you need to allow upgrades from MySQL 5.6 to Maria 10.2 at least! Otherwise, we will choose a host that offers this option.

+1 Please update MariaDB!
MariaDB 10.3 _has_ to be an option. It's 2018 and you only offer 10.0, this is unreasonable.
MariaDB 10.3 is more than just a faster MySQL - https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/changes-improvements-in-mariadb-103/ many important features, e.g. self referencing in UPDATE/DELETE and much more (including bonuses from 10.1 and 10.2)

Actually mariaDB 10.0 came out in 2012 and was in testing (and was already legitimate for production) in 2013. It's old enough that it's based on MySQL 5.5 (with some 5.6 code in there) and it seems like that might eventually be a security issue! They are on 10.3.9 at this point.
Please update Maria DB to the latest. It is now Maria DB 10.3..8
The currrent Maria DB 10 you have in server is already 6 years old.
MariaDB 10.0 is from 2016, and we still don't have MariaDB 10.3...
10.2 would be even better !
Any plans upgrading Mariabdb 10.0 to Mariabdb 10.2.7 latest stable release?

I would love to see MariaDB 10.0.1 as well - adding json column support :)
please support MariaDB 10.1
