I was following Set up Demo Site for Theming Practice; then, I realized that, since Drupal 9 is out, by default Drupal 9 is installed instead of Drupa 8.x is installed when running composer create-project drupal/recommended-project $SITE_NAME.

So I continued along. I was fine, until I came to the install local site. I got this error:

The database server version 10.2.31-MariaDB-1:10.2.31+maria~bionic-log is less than the minimum required version 10.3.7.

Since I'm using ddev and docker, does this mean I need to upgrade my MariaDB version used inside of my image? if so, how do I do that?

A step by step solution explaining each step would be really helpful.


Yes, you need to update MariaDB. Just "cd" to your ddev project directory in the terminal and issue the following commands:

ddev config --mariadb-version=10.4

and then

ddev restart

That's it! Good luck:)
