I need to patch update MySql db from 5.7.30 to 5.7.35 What are the steps involved? Can I take mysqldump and just run yum update on below mysql packages mysql-community-client.x86_64


The likely answer is simply:

  1. take a dump (just for added safety)
  2. use the installer to update
  3. (make sure that mysql_upgrade was run -- I don't know if the yum stuff does such.)

That's an "upgrade in place"; no need to reload the data.

  • Thanks for the reply @Rick James. But isn't it mysql_upgrade instead of mysql_update?
