These are both possible options but given the significance of MySQL we would rather prefer to upgrade to a supported release provided this is viable for Jessie. > If an upgrade is possible, while we did a successful transition in > Ubuntu from 5.5 to 5.7, there were significant changes from 5.6 to 5.7, > requiring small changes to a lot of third-party packages as well as to > the default server behavior, so 5.6 (which is supported until 2021) > would be a better option. I also think it makes sense to take a smaller step and upgrade from 5.5 to 5.6. Are there any known issues with 5.6 or can you share any information about expected regressions with reverse-dependencies? Regards, Markus
