Hello Parabollus,

Thanks for the question about updaing your MySQL version.  It will depend on your account type.  If you're on a Shared Server, you will not be able to update it.  Updating the MySQL version requires some knowledge of the server and what you're running.  Updating it can affect existing websites or applications that use it.  You can find the version of MySQL through phpMyAdmin.

If you're on a dedicated server, you can also follow this guide on updating the MySQL version. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest Regards,

Arnel C.
