Upgrading mysql from 5.5 to 5.6

SOLVED

Upgrading mysql from 5.5 to 5.6

Hi, 

I am looking to install a new magento2 site on my server, then eventually migrate from Magento 1

 

But the problem I have mysql 5.5 and it needs upgrading to mysql 5.6 globally.  

 

So that means my magento 1 site wil be upgraded to 5.6 as well, will this effect the site in anyway?

Re: Upgrading mysql from 5.5 to 5.6

If your magento 1 version is magento 1.9.x You dont need to hesitate for upgrade your mysql version from 5.5 to 5.6.

 

  • Magento CE 1.9.x support MySQL versions upto 5.6.x.

Before proceed with any changes you have to take backup first for your safety.

 

If your Magento 1 version  1.9.0 or below version your site might have effect.

 

So you are secure for upgrade your mysql version for version 1.9.1.x

Hi Wood1e,

 

If you can not use MySQL 5.6 for your live store, another option is to get a separate small development cloud server optimized for Magento 2 and do all the development there. It's always a good idea to separate production and development environments as much as you can anyway.

Many thanks for that, we have 1.9.2.4

I will get my server company to complete the Global upgrade...

 

I can then get on with new magento 2 install Smiley Happy
