Hi Kurt, 

Either MySQL or MariaDB would work just fine.  I just checked and we run Maria DB on our live site and MySQL on our development server.  But typically MariaDB is a drop-in replacement.  You can see more details here:  And I don't have a strong preference for either, but we code for MySQL so that our code works everywhere.

About the CMSB version, Mysql 5.7 was released a few months after CMSB 2.65, so I'd recommend upgrading to the latest version of CMSB.  You'll need it for PHP 7 compatibility as well.  I wrote a post on how to charge your clients for upgrades like this here:

Hope that helps!  Let me know any other questions.
