Hi! I had to reinstall my personal NextCloud instance, and in the process upgraded from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. Not too much trouble, luckily I had my old
config.php. Now I’m greeted with the message
MariaDB version “5.5.57-MariaDB” is used. Nextcloud 21 will no longer support this version and requires MariaDB 10.2 or higher.
You’ve seen this a thousand times before.
Thing is, the database is running on my NAS and it looks like the manufacturer supplies an older version. That’s not great, but there’s not much I can do about it.
Now what? Do I leave it and hope for the best? Do I downgrade Nextcloud to version 20.0.5? Is that even possible? Have I messed up my database beyond repair?
