    Hi Guys,

    I don't have a problem with it, but I'm curious why in "Home »Software »MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade" it has that MySQL 5.6 is EOL February 28, 2018.

    Can someone link me the official EOL announcement by Oracle?

    Wikipedia have the EOL as February 2021
    MySQL - Wikipedia

    Is cPanel no longer supporting that version before it's officially EOL?

    On another note. Is the process in "Home »Software »MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade" able to be run by SSH?

    Hi @cPanelLauren

    Thank you for the link!

    Do you happen to know if the "Home »Software »MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade" process is able to be run by SSH?

    Hey @cPanelLauren

    I just noticed that cPanel now has the expiry date of MySQL 5.6 as February 5, 2021.

    It's inline with with "Extended Support End".

    The blog post yesterday doesn't mention the changed date:
    Upgrading MySQL or MariaDB | cPanel Blog

    Is that what the "Fix" was here?
    - Fixed case CPANEL-24442: Corrected EOL date for MariaDB/MySQL.

    Sounds like @cPanelBenny can finally update that feature request!
    MySQL - support versions through end of Oracle's extended support date so not forced to upgrade

    * Correction
    I meant the blog post doesn't mention that the date changed.

    Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy! I've updated both the blog post and the feature request.
