With new release of Debian, the default db is MariaDb and not Mysql.
I think it's time to update the server documentation here and here (updated 12 years ago).

However the server code has not been written around MariaDB so someone would have to go through that and resolve all the inevitable warnings and errors that would occur when changing the db engine.
