I'm using MySQL 8.0.14 for my project and I want to use it for my AWS ec2 server.

I updated from 5.5 to 5.7 by following this link: Upgrade MySQL to 5.6 on ec2

But don't have any information to update to MySQL 8.0

  • Which OS are you using, the link is for RHEL based distributions. Is it Amazon Linx (1 or 2), CentOS or RedHat?

  • Take a look at tecadmin.net/install-mysql-8-on-centos. Follow the instructions as if you're running RHEL 6. Take a snapshot of your server first just incase
