Hi,

The Webuzo team has launched MySQL 5.7 the latest version in the 5.x series.

You can read about the new features added, deprecated and changed in MySQL 5.7 at the Official Website

Since MySQL 5.7 incorporates number of changes to the Database structure as well as the Password mechanism please consider the following points before installing:
       
  • Currently, We are not providing upgrades to MySQL 5.7 from any version of MySQL, Percona or MariaDB.
  •    
  • Only Fresh installation's of MySQL 5.7 are allowed, so If you have an existing Database then you may not be able to install MySQL 5.7
  •            
  • During the initial launch MySQL 5.7 will be available on Cent OS and gradually support will be rolled out on Ubuntu
  •    
  • Since we are installing MySQL 5.7 from the Vendor's repo itself, MySQL will update itself whenever the OS updates.

For existing user's using MySQL 5.6 we will provide an upgrade mechanism in a future release, so stay tuned.

Let me know if you have any questions in the comment section.

Regards,
The Webuzo Team

I am currently having a challenge upgrading to 5.7 from 5.6.

All efforts to do that proved abortive as i keep getting information that i cant upgrade or install on another database  .

This is actually preventing the installation and setting up of database for an email responder i am working on.

Kindly asssist.

Hi,

Currently, major upgrading Mysql in Webuzo is Supported.
But you can do this manually by following steps.

In order to upgrade the Mysql database first take the Mysql database Backup from Webuzo backup utility.
Then take a Mysql Data directory backup which is located at /var/lib/mysql

Now remove your current Mysql and install what the version you want to install from Webuzo panel. (Don't install the lower version from your current version. This will cause problems while you restoring the database.)

Now go to the Webuzo backup utility in the Database section there you will find restore your database option by which you can restore your old database on a new version of Mysql.
