I just upgraded our MySQL server from 5.5.53 by doing the following:
sudo apt-get purge mysql-server-5.5 mysql-client-5.5 sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.6
Which got me to version 5.6.33
However, I'm looking to get to at least 5.6.4 where it appears the DATETIME datatype takes up 37.5% less space (per this article).
I can't seem to figure out / find how to upgrade from 5.6.33 to 5.6.4. Can anyone help?
FYI - I'm running Ubuntu 14.04. Let me know if you need any other relevant data.
Thanks in advance.
