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.
