MySQL Upgrade - Tues 12th July, 8.15am-9.30am

The MySQL service (mysql.abdn.ac.uk) will be upgraded to use MariaDB v10.3 and will be unavailable during this time.

 

What is happening?

The MySQL service (mysql.abdn.ac.uk) will be upgraded to use MariaDB v10.3 and will be unavailable between 8.15am and 9.30am on Tues 12th July. 

This version change will enforce stricter requirements on SQL interactions and thus, this may require you to upgrade/rewrite your applications. For instance, if you insert data which is too large for a column, previous versions of MariaDB would have truncated the data, but MariaDB v10.3 will now refuse to insert the data and will return with an error.

We will also be defaulting to UTF-8.
