The most recent version of XAMPP now includes MariaDB in place of MySQL. The upgrade from MySQL to MariaDB is straightforward, and the aim is that MariaDB should be a simple drop-in replacement for MySQL in existing projects. Nevertheless, it is still worth going through what's involved as there are a few steps which are not obvious to get it working nicely and it's important to take care to ensure that you do not lose your existing databases and that you keep any changes you have made to your settings.
