MariaDB connections fail with PHP versions prior to 7.3

Written by: on 09 November 2020 09:16 AM 09 November 2020 09:16 AM

There was a bug introduced in MariaDB 10.2.35 and 10.3.26 which breaks connectivity from PHP versions prior to 7.3.

Any sites running PHP 7.0-7.2 would receive the error:

Critical Error Could not connect to the database.

The resolve this upgrade MariaDB to the latest version, or switch to PHP 7.3 or 7.4.
