          Thanks
          Just found it. Children-to-Parent is not relation between 2 objects only. we can select different objects. Amazing.

          Thanks

            Just found out that my hosting service siteground.com doesn't have yet MySql 5.7 and no timeline to support it, any suggestions on other providers and has anyone installed EspoCRM on Azure or Amazon AWS ? I am considering migrating to cloud services.

              Hello telecastg,
              OVH is a french provider.. you can rent VPS and so. (but you do all => root access)
              nucleus.be, is a belgium provider... you ask for a VPS with all your system requirement, he make it for you.. and give you a no root access. it's more expansive than OVH, the support is very good. Some request is pay some not.

            I wish you had given us some advance notice that you were no longer going to support MySQL 5.6. I was surprised when I got this:

            % php command.php upgrade

            Current version is 5.7.11.

            EspoCRM will be upgraded to version 5.8.0 now. Enter [Y] to continue.
            Y
            Downloading...
            Upgrading... This may take a while...

            Error: Your MySQL version is not supported. Please upgrade MySQL to a newer version (5.7.0 or later).

            I don't check the forum before I update. I guess I should have. Not that big a deal. We'll talk to our ISP to see about having them do this upgrade to our server. Thanks.

              Look like I'm in the same position too, my host MySQL is also 5.6 only, specifically: 5.6.41-84.1.

              I guess that is the only problem from what I seen, PHP 7.1.14 should be OK right? It just mean it "Drop Support" or is it more like, "Requirements"?

              Does anyone know any Shared Hosting where they are more update to date with some of their software? Such as MySQL version that isn't 5.6 only.

              ---

              Now more on the release itself, there quite a few thing that is of interest to me, but need to use it before can talk about it.
              • Person Name field: Middle name support
              Finally I can remove this field.

              ---

              Just tried to update, I got an error when I tried mine: Your PHP version (7.1.14) is not supported. Required version: >=7.2.0.

              Look like this page need to be update ( https://www.espocrm.com/download/ ) as it is the requirement now to be PHP 7.2 and MySQL 5.7.

              ---

              I am bitter at the moment. Need to find new Host.

                Sorry for a confusion. I just copied issue names from github. In this context some names are confusing.

                It's a shame that so many hosting providers keep their environment outdated. I recommend to stay away from such. Both mysql 5.6 and php 7.1 are not supported by vendors anymore. And both used to impede a development process of EspoCRM. By dropping their support it makes our work much easier.

                Notice the update. Thank you.

                Yes it is a shame but at least this way I look for a better alternative hosting which I been delaying for far too long.

              I updated to MySQL 5.7 and the install went just fine and everything works as it should. So far I've not seen any speed improvement from the previous database server version to this one... or any difference between Espo 5.8 and the previous version.

                There were major performance improvements in MySQL 8.

                Is MySQL 8 the same as MySQL 5.8? Was going to be my question but then I read the Wiki page. What happen to v6 and v7, funny.

                That good to hear regarding MySQL 8, what the plan for EspoCRM regarding that? Is EspoCRM 6+ will be MySQL 8 as requirement? Or it more like EspoCRM 7+?

                Guess we are stuck with 5.7 for a while, which is the latest version anyway. 8 is too new for most people to support.

            • #12
              I had (and have) the option to go to MySQL 8 but I use a photo gallery server called Piwigo https://piwigo.org/ and that system has had some difficulties with MySQL 8. When Espo requires version 8 that is when I'll go to it... and I read somewhere in one of the forums here that Espo has a few issues with it.

                    Will check them out. I made a post here that might interest people who are struck with 5.6 MySQL and need to look for new host.

                    It too bad they don't have Live chat. I want to ask them about their Shared Hosting.

                    Hi espcrm,

                    They do have live chat. Its under the Contact Us menu option. They are very responsive and immediate. Their sales and support respond within 2 minutes on their ticket system and instantly on the live chat. They can even provide you with DR sites by staging your servers in alternate locations. Our DR servers are located about 30 miles away, if needed, they can even locate it in Singapore for us in Malaysia.

                  This is my recommendation records MySQL Servers.

                  (1) Do not migrate to version 8.x. Lots of migration issues plus Oracle wants to nail us for licensing. That's my take on it.
                  (2) I am not sure if there is a version 5.8. Oracle jumped to version 8.x solely to take us to the licensing part . If you are small to medium size this does not really matter. Enterprise level is good to migrate to 8.0 but lots of testing to be done with the irritation of Oracle releasing updates in between.
                  (3) We were thinking either migrate 5.7 or MariaDB. Your code will not change (not that i am aware of) in either case.
                  (4) If you are on 5.6, its good to migrate but need to do lots of testing. We wanted to do that last year and really didnt do anything except to switch over into another VPS and tested it live for 1 month. We stopped it mid way due lots of projects at hand.

                  One thing puzzles me. Why stop support of MySQL 5.6 when the end of life is only February 2021 which 2 years from now? Isnt this too premature and also without lead time? Its going to be a big decision for us to make when we have so much going on now.

                    Refer to this post for end of 5.6: https://forum.espocrm.com/forum/anno...5667#post55667

                    There may have been warning on the Git but I don't monitor it so not sure, perhaps there are many code that is reliance on mySQL 5.7 already and with the release of 5.8 it become mandatory.

                    Or there may be virtually no code at all but a decision need to be make for the upcoming 5.9 or v6.0 where mySQL 5.7 is required.
