Upgrade to Version 21.X

Is there anyway to upgrade to Version 21.6 or older Version 21.X released in 2021??

I know some are experiencing issues with the latest version breaking things, so wondering what the options are for upgrades while waiting on a new stable release.

Thanks!

Yes, you can upgrade from about any version to the current version.
However, PHP, Python, and MySQL must be at supported versions otherwise you will have issues.

Also, you didn’t give any sort of description of the issues you are experiencing.

Cannot get passed this -

You need a newer mysql and set row_format to dynamic if it’s not

I actually upgraded mysql to version 10.2 and I thought I set the row_format to dynamic. Can give me the line needed in the configuration file, and also, just to be sure, it needs to be set in the server.conf file, right?

ALTER TABLE `config`  ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC;

First google result.
