HI,
In one of the mysql server when i run the query : select @@version;
The output is : 10.0.17-MariaDB-log
On other the output is :
5.6.23

What does these different mean ?
I am using these two for staging and production databases...

Thanks

MariaDB is the most popular fork of MySQL and currently is replacing MySQL on many Distros.
So both outputs are correct.
If you go to the Downloads page of MariaDB you will see
MariaDB 10.1 is the current stable (GA) release of MariaDB. It is built on MariaDB 10.0 with features from MySQL 5.6 & 5.7, and entirely new features not found anywhere else.

I have transferred databases from MySQL to MariaDB without any problems or changes in code.  Matter of fact, I didn't know it was a different version until after it was up and running.  It shouldn't mean a thing to your operations.
