Currently Running: Ununtu nginx 1.13.9, PHP 7.2.2-3+ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 and MySQL 5.5.5-10.1.31-MariaDB-1~xenial.
My question in can we update this MySQL version from 5.5 to 5.7.
According to the update:
v5.7 is 3x faster than 5.6.
I think that would really benefit WordPress too.
Will it be possible to do so ?
Or is it that EE was compiled with 5.5 so we are stuck with that version?
There are also newer versions of MariaDB; can they be updated?
