How do I upgrade MySQL with the CloudLinux MySQL Governor tool?
If you are using CloudLinux's MySQL Governor tool, you won't be able to use the normal WHM >> MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade page to perform this work.
To change the version of MySQL that you're running you just need to run the following two commands.
/usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/mysqlgovernor.py --mysql-version=MYSQL_VERSION /usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/mysqlgovernor.py --install
The first command sets the MySQL version you want to use, and the second command performs the change on the machine. You can find more details about this process with the CloudLinux documentation here:
