Installation spec Mysql version 8
« on: April 02, 2021, 04:50:42 pm »

Looking to migrate from an old FBSD 9.3 server to new 12.2 Specs on box as follows
FreeBSD 12.2
Apache24-2.4.46
mod_php74-7.4.16             
php74-7.4.16                 
php74-mysqli-7.4.16
mysql80-client-8.0.23       
mysql80-server-8.0.23         
php74-mysqli-7.4.16           
libgd-2.3.1,1

My concern is the Mysql80 version as I don't see a lot of information in the docs or on the forum for it. Is this a viable option?

If it is a part of a standard distribution and the distribution also has php74-mysqli, I don't believe there should be any issue. And should there be some problem, you could likely switch to MariaDB.
All this assumes you're using CPG 1.6.x.

I agree. MariaDB is easy to migrate to in FreeBSD and he better option for any live site - https://www.unixmen.com/migrate-from-mysql-to-mariadb-in-freebsd/

I always prefer MariaDB as I am quite sure the wolves from Oracle (Who own MySQL) will come looking for money at some point.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

MY apologies, Yes it is CPG 1.6.x I am sorry about that.

I am looking into the mariadb item. Thank you for the heads up on that.
