Mysql Database Update




our database server runs with mysql 5.5.37 at the moment. We plan to setup a new server with 5.6.16. How can we bring the ownCloud tables to the other database instance? Just dump and pump the data without touching it and configure the new server in the config.php?

We use 7.0.12 at the moment but plan to update to 9.0.x after the database migration.



OwnCloud doesn't require a specific version of mysql. Perhaps there are even upgrade strategies to keep your database, however a complete dump of your database should be done anyway.


Dump out and in again.
I do it as part of my automated test-instance-rebuild all the time.

But dont forget to recreate the db-priviledges - they are not part of the dump.
