rds instance upgraded when Auto minor version upgrade is Disabled


We have a MySQL instance with version 8.0.23 running for a few months now and this is the max version supported on the third party service we are using. So, I have disabled the 'Auto minor version upgrade' option. Since two days the service is not working as expected and when I checked the version it got minor upgraded to 8.0.28 even though the option is disabled.

I found this answer https://repost.aws/questions/QUSriNlSzGRSSWDWYQOnox1g/rds-auto-upgrade-bug-automatic-minor-upgrade-despite-being-disabled

As I cannot go back to the version 8.0.23, are there any other solutions? or do I need to self-host?

If it is a must to have exactly that version, your main option is probably to host it in ec2, which of course has the disadvantage of increasing operational overhead on your side with patch management for example.

On the other hand, Ec2 will give you full control over your database, to use features that may not currently available in RDS and allow you to fine tuning installation as you wish.

Hope it helps ;)
