Update to MySQL 8.0?

I’ve installed Local 2.2.4 and I require new features available in MySQL 8.0. Can I upgrade Local to use MySQL 8.0? I’ve configured MySQL WorkBench as my SQL client.

If we (I) cannot upgrade to MySQL 8.0 is the Pro version going to “really” be Pro so we can use what we actually need for development?

Hey @ClintonGallagher

Having MySQL 5.7 and 8.0 are on our road map, but at this time there isn’t an “easy” way of doing this.

If you are adventurous, you can always try upgrading MySQL using apt while ssh'd into the site’s container.

I’m adventurous.


How was the adventure @ClintonGallagher - any luck?
