Migrating H2 to MySQL - MySQL Version?


I currently use the initial H2 database to run metabase. As I understand you do not recommend H2 for production.

So I looked in the migration’s guide:

I see you recommend MySQL 5.7.7. Actually under Ubuntu Server 18.04, the default mysql installation and regular update path leads to 5.7.33-0ubuntu0.18.04.1 as released in January 2021: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.7/en/news-5-7-33.html

So I guess that wouldn’t work? (not sure if you really mean 5.7.7 or just the latest 5.7 MySQL version)

Best regards

Hi @gueti
I think you’re misreading our documentation. It’s the minimum recommended version. That means anything above that version.

So is MySQL 5.7.33 is not supported then? right?

@gueti Every version of MySQL from 5.7.7 and later (that includes 5.7.33) are supported.

ah, now I get it. I always read my version as - sorry for being slow on the uptake.
