Tarballs, source and binaries (Linux and Windows), and packages for some Linux distributions are available at mariadb.org/download.
We hope that interested community package maintainers will step forward, as others already have, to build packages for their distributions. We ask for strict adherence to your packaging system's best practices and invite you to create a bug report if our project impedes this in any way.
These haven't passed through a full release process; however changes there have been reviewed and are considered complete by the server developers. Its recommend to use these for testing.
Getting the Source
To retrieve the code, the Git source control software offers the path of least resistance. If you are unfamiliar with git, please refer to the git documentation for an understanding of version control with git.
For instructions on creating a local branch of MariaDB, see the Getting the MariaDB Source Code page.
See the Generic Build Instructions page for general instructions on compiling MariaDB from the source. The source page has links to platform and distribution-specific information, including information on how we build the release packages.
Running the most recent MariaDB version is generally the best choice. Note that there are long-term releases, maintained for five years, and short-term releases, maintained for one year. However, some organizations still use old or very old versions of MariaDB. An upgrade would probably require important changes in their applications, and sometimes they don't even have the sources of those applications.
mariadb.org/download/ contains all historical releases.
There are source and repositories there. To use repositories see the following link:
It is also possible to access Docker Official Images of MariaDB back to 5.5.40 when it became an official image (available tags).
