Let me phrase this another way.
I verified this is the stack that I am running:
Version 5.6.2-0 2021-02-22
- Updated MySQL to 8.0.23
- Updated OpenSSL to 1.1.1j
- Updated PHP to 7.4.15
- Updated WordPress to 5.6.2
At this version Bitnami switched from MySQL to MariaDB:
Version 5.7.1-3 2021-05-06
- Migrated DB to MariaDB
- Updated MariaDB to 10.4.18
- Updated NGINX Open Source to 1.20.0
- Updated PHP to 7.4.18
- Updated SQLite to 3.35.5
I want to update the stack to this version:
Version 5.8-0 2021-07-28
- Updated MariaDB to 10.4.20
- Updated NGINX Open Source to 1.21.1
- Updated PHP to 7.4.21
- Updated SQLite to 3.36.0
- Updated Varnish to 6.0.8
- Updated WordPress to 5.8
Since the stack was modified from MySQL to MariaDB and I am using for auto-scaling reasons AWS Aurora MySQL Will I be able to update the stack to the latest version and continue using AWS Aurora MySQL?
Or will I have to swallow the jagged pill (lose the reserved instance) and start a new non reserved Amazon relational data base MariaDB instance?
I know that I can update WordPress with my existing Bitnami stack that is not the question.
