How upgrade major version mariadb 5.5.65 to 10.0 or higher in Sangoma Distrib?

I upgrade a FreePBX distro 14 with Asterisk 13 to FreepPBX15.
Also I need to shrink size files of DB (asteriskcdrdb: cdr and cel) after deleting old call history.

[[email protected]]$ ll -h /var/lib/mysql/
total 1.7G
drwx------. 2 mysql mysql  16K Jun 27 16:33 asterisk
drwx------. 2 mysql mysql   50 Jun 28 10:12 asteriskcdrdb
-rw-rw----. 1 mysql mysql 1.7G Jun 30 11:22 ibdata1
-rw-rw----. 1 mysql mysql 5.0M Jun 30 11:22 ib_logfile0
-rw-rw----. 1 mysql mysql 5.0M Jun 30 11:23 ib_logfile1

But mariadb 5.5.65 cannot execute the OPTIMIZE TABLE INNODB function, because it does not have such a function. This feature is available in the next major version - 10.1.
But I can’t install it - due to limitations of the FREEPBX distribution.

Recommendations for updating mariadb

  • Modify the repository configuration
  • Set innodb_fast_shutdown to 0
  • Stop MariaDB
  • Uninstall the old version of MariaDB
  • Install the new version of MariaDB
  • Start MariaDB
  • Run mysql_upgrade

But when i try to uninstall mariadb

Tell me, please, what are the ways to solve my problem?

The short answer is you do not.

This is not a piecemeal system where you do what you want.

The FreePBX Distro is a wholistic system. You use it as it is provided or don’t use the Distro.
