MySQL 8.0 Support

Jonathan W. shared this idea 19 months ago
Planned

As a cPanel user, I would like support for MySQL version 8 as this version provides a large number of quality of life improvements over MySQL Version 5.7.

MySQL 8 is coming to CentOS 7 in v88.

This is a good idea because MYSQL 8 is 3 times more powerful than MYSQL 5.7

Any update on this support?

It's much faster than MySQL 5.7.

Cloudlinux also released MySQL Governor for MySQL 8 in beta some days ago:https://cloudlinux.com/cloudlinux-os-blog/entry/beta-mysql-8-0-for-mysql-governor-released

They state in that link "cPanel does not officially support MySQL 8.0, that is why we don’t recommend to use it on cPanel servers."

It's been a year since GA - MySQL 8.0.11 (2018-04-19, General Availability). Hope to see it soon in cPanel.

I'm curious about MYSQL 8 as well and curious how you guys feel about it compared to MariaDB.

This is on the radar, so as soon as we have it in development for an upcoming release, we'll make sure to post an update here, so subscribe to this thread for updates. Also please make sure you're voting so the team can get an idea of what demand is for specific features.

We were promised that this was around the corner when we had a meeting in march in Cloudfest.

Whats the hold up?

So sorry for the confusion! I'm not sure exactly where the difference was, but you should be hearing from your account rep soon.

Didn't hear anything from our account rep about this.What's the ETA on this?

I'm waiting for this.

MySQL 8 availability in cPanel would be a great.

Please, remove the 8 characters prefix restriction, like in MariaDB.

I don't have anything new to report on this right now. We'll update here as soon as we have something new to share. If you'd like to comment with additional use cases as to why this feature would benefit you, that's super helpful.

Use case for this is the speed improvement!

Other specialized hosts does have advantage in speed in many cases, therefore you should always have highest priority on such features that can improve speed for cPanel endusers and their websites.


cPanel is falling behind in many features. This is the most important feature and it should be implementet ASAP!

Even DirectAdmin have had MySQL 8 for a long time now.

Bluehost uses CentOS with WHM/cPanel for VPS servers. There would be a lot of happy customers with a lot more faster web sites having V8 support!

Also 8 adds fixes to bugs introduced by 5.7 such as this one which significantly increases the execution time for certain queries:

@Morten said it better than I could.

And being obsessed with perfermance I would love to see cPanel put on a diet. Growing big over the years can slow down production vastly.


Mysql 8 = Better performance = less resources = less energy drain = less CO2 release = win for all.

I would like to hear good reasons not to implement MySQL 8.0.

Also, MySQL8 has JSON document management capability that 5.7 has not (limited). My application wants to use the JSON related functionality that is now not accessible via cPanel (and hosts that offer cPanel).

Here is what MySQL 8 offers, which I can run on my local machine but sadly not on cPanel.

JSONMySQL 8.0 adds new JSON functions and improves performance for sorting and grouping JSON values.

There are over 10 new extremely useful JSON functions. Which would have helped me insanely while building a "Survey Application". Due to lack of these functions I had to write 100-200 lines of SQL queries.


RANK()

This function is the craziest of all for me, without any exceptions, I have a place where I need to rank a table, in all of my apps. Without this I need to do some extremely unreadable and clunky extra coding. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3333665/rank-function-in-mysql


There is no need to mention indexing improvements.

Is it going to be possible to switch to MySQL 8.0 from MariaDB 10.3? Thanks.

when will it be released?

It is not possible to switch from MariaDB to MySQL.


We are currently in v86 EDGE tier. There are 3 more release tiers for v86 to go through before v88 will be released, so probably several months away, but I don't have an exact date for you.

Is it possible to coexist on the same server MySQL8 and Maria DB?
