MySQL 5.6 Support ETA

aww shared this idea 6 years ago
Completed

MySQL 5.6 has been available as a release candidate since September 2012.


Oracle has promised a "production-ready product release in early 2013" (their words).


I would like to hear a formal announcement regarding Cpanel and MySQL 5.6 implementation, even if the ETA is many months away and tethered to Oracle's gold release date.


This would demonstrate Cpanel being proactive instead of reactive.


Thank you.

Definitely MySQL 5.6.10 GA as an option along with MariaDB 5.5/10.01 would be nice!

Hello Derric,


We do not currently have an estimate as to when support for MySQL 5.6 will be provided. The best source of information in regards to the feature request that you've linked to would be the Feature Request System.


The request has been reviewed and has been switched to "Open Discussion." When any progress occurs on the feature the status will be updated to reflect this and we will make an official statement.


Please let me know if you have any further questions.


Regards,

I'm waiting for this myself. 5.6 has finally been released as a general release for MySQL. Would be nice of cPanel added it... I know Direct Admin is adding it.

having mysql 5.6 will be great, speically the innodb fulltext search

photo

InnoDB fulltext search will enable us to finally have a fully ACID compliant database and consign out use of MyISAM to history. We're also very keen to use the new replication features - too many times a cPanel update to MySQL has caused us replication problems as it uses OUR MySQL master for its own purposes. The internal workings of cPanel should be kept in a MySQL host under its control and leave user MySQL hosts under user control. This then lends itself to running multiple instances of MySQL on the same host, and if cPanel code needs to stay on an old version of MySQL that's fine, but let us users advance to newer versions more quickly.

Waiting for a long time MySQL 5.6 support on cPanel. InnoDB fulltext search is gonna save us :)


I hope this feature will be available in cPanel as soon as possible...

Search is everything

I believe, a lot of people from PHP-MySQL community and personally I was waiting for FullText Search support on InnoDB engine. Within this feature, there is no more excuse to wait for us to move on InnoDB on MySQL. This will make us to write more professional PHP-MySQL based software platforms.


We are waiting for cPanel to support this feature :)

This is great and will be a valued addition to the websites we already run. We cannot wait till this is available in Cpanel and WHM.

6 months+? Time to start jumping ship perhaps and run MySQL under a cPanel free hosting environment. cPanel should be a regular MySQL beta tester so that they're on the ball and ready to go when GA releases are available. MySQL 5.6 offers huge benefits if the change log is to be believed when it comes to replication

I'd prefer MariaDB over MySQL.

With reading how significant of an upgrade this is, especially being way more powerful, i'd love to have this updated in cpanel, even if i had to pay!

My WHM is 11.38.1

Currently installed mysql version is : 5.5.32


My box has lot of Innodb tables having millions of records .. To search in record using LIKE %% query

make my box getting hanged .. takes almost 20-40 seconds to complete each query processing ..


So at last decided to use Fulltext Search with InnoDB ..


But the problem is InnoDB Full-Text Search is in MySQL 5.6.4 or above versions ..

So i need it urgently..!

@remshad InnoDB Fulltext is very slow compared to MyISAM fulltext out of the box, use Sphinx or other search indexing instead if that's your goal. A query which used to complete in 0.3s now takes over 2s with innodb fulltext instead of myisam and the resource usage is much higher.


I am running an external MySQL 5.6 server but I can't add users to databases, add additional hosts or modify mysql passwords from cpanel, otherwise everything related to databases in WHM or phpmyadmin works fine.I get the Ran adminbin error.

5.7 is on its way (5.7.2 m12) and 5.6 reached 5.6.14 already.

After 7 months and still waiting.

//Pausing hope. Just wait

Got my email from Oracle today highlighting how much faster 5.7 is than 5.6, particularly with temporary tables. I wonder whether many of us will have retired or died from old age by the time cPanel give us 5.6, let alone 5.7? THE most used database for websites and it's getting no attention from cPanel whatsoever. LAMP is in danger of becoming LA?P

Can anyone from official site give us a quick update on this?


How safe is it to upgrade MySQL manually? Does this raise any major issues?

This really needs to happen. They are now onto 5.7 and it's even faster than 5.6 (which is perfectly stable), and supports full text, which without limits a lot of possibilities. If it is not available soon I will simply switch to DirectAdmin instead as they've had it for some time now. cPanel needs to get this going.

MySQL 5.7 is still under development. I think what you are really saying is "cPanel, please support newer versions of MySQL faster/sooner." Is that an accurate understanding?

Why is upgrading MySQL such a low priority?

No offense to Kenneth, but I have found cPanel extremely slow to adopt new or upgrade existing items. IPv6 took around 8 years from the time of first post to the point of implementation in the Release Tier. DNSSEC is, if following the above timetable, almost half way through the process to implementation. There's no reason to believe MySQL upgrades won't get the same attention.


I have always enjoyed using cPanel as my control panel software, it's just disheartening to see how slow the software moves on certain points.
