Mysql minor version upgrade

Hi Percona Team,

Can I get complete steps of upgrading MySQL minor version from 5.7.29 to 5.7.31 on redhat linux server with yum repository.

Thanks

Hi @bKumar,
Upgrading minor versions in MySQL is very easy.

  1. Stop MySQL
  2. Upgrade packages using yum
  3. Start MySQL
  4. Run mysql_upgrade

We always recommend that you use pt-upgrade to test your application queries against a new server running the newer version of MySQL first. But if you just want to quickly upgrade, the above 4 steps are all you need.
