    Hello,

    Mysql 5.5 is currently end-of-life on 12/31/15. Will I still be able to upgrade from 5.5 to 5.6 after this date or must I upgrade prior to this date?

    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    You can upgrade to MySQL 5.6 after this date, but it's generally a good idea to upgrade as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

    Will I still be able to upgrade through WHM from 5.5 to 5.6 after 12/31/15? Thanks.

    Or will I have to upgrade manually at command line outside of WHM? Sorry if I wasn't clear before. Thanks.

    Yes, you can still upgrade through Web Host Manager when MySQL 5.5 reaches EOL.

    Thank you.
