    Hi there!
    We're about to migrate to an new server.

    The current one is running MySQL 5.1.73. Should we better upgrade MySQL to 6.5 before moving to the new server?
    Or OK to just move the backups from 5.1 to 6.5?

    Reason is that we will need two service windows to do both the update and the migrate..

    Thanks in advace,
    Johan

    Hello :)

    It's up to you if you want to upgrade MySQL on the source server first to see how your MySQL-based websites respond. It might be better to upgrade first to work out any compatibility issues and then transfer the accounts.

    Thank you.

    Yes, the steps listed in that document are the recommended steps for transferring your accounts to a new server.

    Thank you.
