Hope someone can help me out with an issue I'm experiencing.
I'm trying to install Magento CE 2.1 on a webserver running PHP 7. The database is MySQL 5.7.16 running on a separate server, both hosted externally.
The pre-check is completed without error and I can continue to add a database, and this is where it fails. Once I have added the data (server host, username, password and so on),and click next, Magento tells me that I need MySQL version 5.6 or later.
As mentioned the database is MySQL 5.7.16 and I have no clue on how to get passed this.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
I haven't had this error personally, but since no one else is replying: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/37459330/sorry-but-we-support-mysql-version-5-6-0-or-later
I'm afraid that's not possible since I'm using a hosted server and they decline due to security updates and stuff like that.
Guess I need to look into other systems instead, and that's a shame since I would really like to test Magento.
