How do I upgrade MySQL/MariaDB on my server?
The WHM interface MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade can be used to configure your desired version and initiate upgrades. Once a major version has been installed, minor version updates will be performed automatically during your nightly cPanel updates(unless system package updates are disabled).
For additional information regarding the usage of this feature, see the following documentation.
Before proceeding with a major version upgrade, we advise you ensure there are working backups of the databases. For more details on methods in which to generate backups, see the following article.
