MariaDB 10.6 has replaced 10.3 as the default MariaDB version in Forge. Servers that were provisioned with MariaDB 10.3 will continue to run 10.3. New servers will now install 10.6.
If you don’t have a Forge account, now is a great time to [sign up](https://forge.laravel.com/)! Forge allows you to painlessly create and manage PHP servers which include MySQL, Redis, Memcached, database backups, and everything else you need to run robust, modern Laravel applications.
