MySQL version differences?

Hi I’m getting a mysql error trying to import some tables to a reclaim space set up at my college using an export from a db on my personal faculty reclaim space. I’m thinking it might be because mine is running v10.2.32-MariaDB and the college site is v5.7.30. Is there a way to change MySQL version, or a reason for the different setup of the two accounts? Thanks!


Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but we’re currently digging through forum posts to ensure that we answer as many questions as we can even if only to have the information publicly available for the future. Could you provide some more details on which college this is for so I can take a look at the server specifications.
