I've picked up an IT role and I'm new to yum so please forgive me.
yum list shows these mysql packages installed:
mysql.x86_64 5.1.73-5.el6_6 @base mysql-libs.x86_64 5.1.73-5.el6_6 @base mysql-server.x86_64 5.1.73-5.el6_6 @base
I've been asked to upgrade the packages to 5.7.13.
The MySQL documentation refers to release series:
This command is supposed to show me "all the subrepositories in the MySQL Yum repository, and see which of them are enabled or disabled"
shell> yum repolist all | grep mysql
The command produces no output.
Assuming I'm not worried about upgrading one series at a time and am happy to jump directly from 5.1 to 5.7, how do I do that?
In that same bit of MySQL documentation I see this:
shell> sudo yum-config-manager --disable mysql57-community shell> sudo yum-config-manager --enable mysql56-community
Should I try to disable mysql51-community, if that's what I have, and enable mysql57-community, then do yum install mysql?
And, related to this question, what's the backout process if I can't get 5.7.13 to work? I am working with a sandbox VM and I do have a snapshot of it so I'm not worried about trashing it if worst comes to worst.
