36 If you're upgrading from a previous version, the [[upgrade will fail>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-19573]]. The workaround is to execute the following SQL command on the main wiki DB (and on all subwiki DBs): ##DROP TABLE xwikilinks;##. Then only, start XWiki 14.2.
37
38 In addition, we identified an upgrade issue with ##mariadb client 3.0.##3. To fix it, replace the ##mariadb-java-client-3.0.3.jar## with [[mariadb-java-client-3.0.4.jar>>https://search.maven.org/remotecontent?filepath=org/mariadb/jdbc/mariadb-java-client/3.0.4/mariadb-java-client-3.0.4.jar]]. The file should be located at ##tomcat/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib/mariadb-java-client-3.0.3.jar## (for instance, ##cp ~~/Downloads/mariadb-java-client-3.0.4.jar /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib/mariadb-java-client-3.0.3.jar##).
