Updating mariadb

Post by dietpiOK »

Hi!

On my dietpi machine I am running the latest version of dietpi (6.32.2).
I have installed package 82 (from "Software optimised") which will result in having mariadb 10.1.45 being installed.

How can I upgrade that one to the latest 10.5.5 version?
I would suggest to do it with apt-get but will this affect "dietpi-update" in any terms? Usually I keep my dietpi box up to date by using the built-in tool.

Best regards,
Olaf

Hi,

many thanks for your question. You can perfrom apt update && apt upgrade without issues. There will be no negativ impact on dietpi-update. Basically dietpi-update is doing the same prior to update DietPi core scripts.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Thanks for that fast reply.

So if I run dietpi-update the mariadb engine will also be updated to the latest version 10.5.5?

well it depends if there is an update available for DietPi themselves. If you are already on lates version of DietPi v6.32.2, dietpi-update will not do anything. Therefore running apt update && apt upgrade would be better in your case.
