Fixed: EspoCRM displayed error when using MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 versions on server

There was a bug in MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 Webuzo packages that when installing EspoCRM MariaDB version was being displayed as empty thus causing EspoCRM installation failure. We have fixed the issue and launched MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 packages.

Now EspoCRM will be installed properly on server using MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 versions. We request all our users to update MariaDB packages by executing below cron command:
# /usr/local/emps/bin/php /usr/local/webuzo/cron.php

In order to apply the change, please reinstall MariaDB 10.X version on your server. But please remember to first take backup of all your databases using Webuzo Database Backup utility first and then reinstall MariaDB 10.X version on server.

If you face any issues related to packages updation then let us know in the comments section. We will make sure to answer as many queries as we can.
