MySQL 5.7.6+ dropped mysql.user password column

Version 1.52.0


BETA Although CustomBuild didn't get the MySQL 5.7 version added (because it had some conversion issues to MariaDB), we've also learnt that it dropped the password column completely: basically replacing it with a column called "authentication_string", but also means there are other required syntax changes that DA will need to do if MySQL 5.7 would be supported in DA. To support the 5.7.6 changes, add mysql_milestone_16=1 to your directadmin.conf, and restart directadmin. Update: April 2018: CustomBuild DOES currently support MySQL 5.7, so setting the variable in the directadmin.conf should happen automatically. More info:
