You are using MySQL 5.7 server. This version is not available for AlmaLinux 8. You first need to update your MySQL server to 8.0 or later. You can update to version 8.0 using the following command: /usr/local/cpanel/bin/whmapi1 start_background_mysql_upgrade version=8.0 Once the MySQL upgrade is finished, you can then retry to elevate to AlmaLinux 8.
System is not up to date
So, is this an issue if I proceed with this MySQL update? I am up to date running the latest release of the forum software.
The platform is compatible with MySQL 8, yes. Of course you would need to ensure you do full backups of everything and ensure you consult with a server administrator if you are unsure how to successfully perform these options
