Beta: MySQL for MySQL Governor updated

May 4, 2020 5:44:58 PM / by Inessa Atmachian



New updated MySQL packages for MySQL Governor for CloudLinux 6, 7, and 8 are now available for download from our updates-testing repository.



  • updated up to 8.0.20

To update MySQL 8.0, run:

# yum update cl-MySQL-meta-client cl-MySQL-meta-devel cl-MySQL-meta cl-MySQL* --enablerepo=cloudlinux-updates-testing
# service mysql restart
# service db_governor restart

To install MySQL 8.0 on a new server, run:

# yum install governor-mysql
# /usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/ --mysql-version=mysql80
# /usr/share/lve/dbgovernor/ --install-beta


  • Do not upgrade servers earlier than 5.7 to 8.0.
  • cPanel does not officially support MySQL 8.0, that is why we don’t recommend to use it on cPanel servers.
  • Use on your own risk for DirectAdmin and Plesk servers, because downgrade can corrupt your databases.
