In addition to learning about the changes in this release, we highly recommend reviewing the License Statistics v5.14 Release Notes if you are upgrading from an older version.


MySQL 5.7

This release requires upgrading MySQL Server to version v5.7. Make sure you follow the License Statistics upgrade procedure for an embedded or external database. Most importantly:

  • Create a backup of the License Statistics database in case of any issues with the data migration.
  • Do not use a "quick update" procedure for this release.
  • Configure the external MySQL database (if applicable) by copying the embedded database configuration and adjusting it to your needs, instead of copying your previous configuration file to the new installation or using the default MySQL configuration.
