LogicalDOC CE 7.5.1 has been successfully installed on Ubuntu 14.04 Server using MariaDB 10.1.
This install was on a vanilla install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTE 64bit Server. The steps below follow what I did to configure Ubuntu for LogicalDOC.

Brief introduction MariaDB 5.5 corresponds to version 5.5 of MySQL, MariaDB 10 instead corresponds essentially to the 5.6 version of MySQL. Initially we had thought to install on the system MariaDB version 5.5 using the instructions published at this address https://www.liquidweb.com/kb/how-to-install-mariadb-5-5-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts/ Afterwards, having verified the availability of newer versions we opted to install MariaDB 10.1 following the instructions published by this other address https://www.vultr.com/docs/install-mariadb-on-ubuntu-14-04
Add the MariaDB Repository
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
To find which repo you should use with the MariaDB repository generator. We’re going to add the Ubuntu 14.04 “trusty” MariaDB 10.1 repository.
Import the public key and add the MariaDB repository:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 0xcbcb082a1bb943db sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://mirror.jmu.edu/pub/mariadb/repo/10.1/ubuntu trusty main'
Once the key is imported and the repository added you can install MariaDB with:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mariadb-server
Verify that MariaDB is operational
After installation, run mysql -u root -p. Enter your password when prompted. You will see output similar to the following:
Welcome to the MariaDB monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MariaDB connection id is XXXX Server version: 5.5.X Copyright (c) 2000, 2014, Oracle, Monty Program Ab and others. Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement. MariaDB [(none)]>
Congratulations, you have successfully installed MariaDB. If you instead received an error, retry by running the following command:
service mysql start
