Solved: Bamboo doesn't support MySQL version 5.5.5-10.1.26-MariaDB-0+deb9u1 Edited

Got this error while trying to install latest Bamboo:

There is indeed a workaround but keep in mind MariaDB is unsupported. This means that while the MariaDB fork aims to maintain high compatibility with MySQL APIs, we don't test against it and compatibility isn't guaranteed. If it turns out MariaDB doesn't work in some scenarios, a bug fix isn't guaranteed.

Here's a list of supported platforms for the latest version of Bamboo:

MariaDB 5.5 is also based on MySQL 5.5 which we dropped support for in Bamboo 5.12+. It'll probably be fine, but it's a risk -- take precautionary backups just to be safe.

The validation check for MySQL can be disabled with the below JVM argument:

-Dbamboo.upgrade.fail.if.mysql.unsupported=false

I've included the documentation that explains configuring system properties / JVM arguments in Bamboo below:

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks, this helps. The reason why I was looking for workaround is I have another version of bamboo on another server running on mariadb with no problem and eventually I would like to update that instance as well.
