Replacement of MySQL database

In Debian Stretch the MySQL database is being replaced with MariaDB

In Debian Jessie the version of MySQL provided is 5.5. In Debian Stretch MySQL will be replaced by MariaDB version 10.1.26. We will provide further guidance on the upgrade procedure when the test servers are available in 2018.

MariaDB have a page on transitioning in Debian at https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/moving-from-mysql-to-mariadb-in-debian-9/
