MySQL 8.0 Launched

Hi,

Webuzo Team has launched MySQL 8.0, the latest version of MySQL. It is available for both Ubuntu and CentOS.

A lot of important new features have been added in this version. You will find everything you need to know about these amazing new features on this link https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/mysql-nutshell.html

Please note these following points:

– Currently, We are not providing upgrades to MySQL 8.0 from any version of MySQL, Percona or MariaDB.
– Only Fresh installation’s of MySQL 8.0 are allowed, so If you have an existing Database then you may not be able to install MySQL 8.0
– Since we are installing MySQL 8.0 from the Vendor’s repo itself, MySQL will update itself whenever the OS updates.

Let us know if you have any queries regarding MySQL 8.0 in the comment section.

Regards,
Webuzo Team.

Webuzo System Application: phpMyAdmin 4.8.2 Launched

Hi,

The Webuzo Team has launched phpMyAdmin 4.8.2 the latest version in the release branch.

Please check the change log below:

The urgent vulnerability allows an authenticated attacker to exploit a phpMyAdmin feature to show and potentially execute files on the server. PHP open_basedir restrictions mitigate the effect of this flaw. For further details, see the PMASA announcement.

A second flaw was also fixed allowing an attacker to use a specially crafted database name to trick a user in to executing a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack in the Designer feature.

In addition to the security fixes, this release also includes these bug fixes as part of our regular release cycle:

  • WHERE 0 clause causes a fatal error
  • Fix missing “INDEX” icon

Known issues:

  • Unable to log in with MySQL 8.0.11 (bug #14220, see also https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=76243)
  • A few users have reported being unable to log in with a persistent error message “Failed to set session cookie. Maybe you are using HTTP instead of HTTPS”. In some cases, clearing the phpMyAdmin cookies (‘pma*’) resolves the issue.

If you have any questions regarding the upgrade or any issues after upgrade let me know in the comments.

Regards,
The Webuzo Team
