mysql allowed versions

Post by opto » 2019-08-20 12:22

I come from hmailserver 4.4 (?) with an mysql version 4.18. Still using that in an old hmailserver 5.

I want to upgrade to most recent hmailserver, maybe using an external mysql/mariadb. Which mysql versions are allowed for the sql syntax?
I know mysql 4 is different from 5, at least in table definitions. What about mysql 6 or newer? Anybody has experience on upgrading to newer mysql?

many thanks,

I connected with a tool and did a SQL backup from internal MySQL DB then after install of new database (on new server too) then restored.
No trouble - but test first to be safe
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.
