Upgrading shared database server (MariaDB / MySQL) from MariaDB 10.3 to 10.4

Simba Hosting is committed to using up-to-date technologies – rather than letting our systems “rot”, and allowing customers to experience the increasing problems that result (which is sadly common in the web hosting industry). In keeping with this, our shared web hosting database server – MariaDB – has been updated from version 10.3 to version 10.4. This brings new features and improvements. Based upon the release notes, we are not expecting any customer issues, and all appears to be running well; however, if you see any changed behaviour, please do let our support team know (providing all the relevant details that you can).
