Mysql 8.0.29 issues (version disappear)


Hello there, I have created mysql rds instance with mysql 8.0.29, but now it's says that this version is deprecated, and I can't upgrade instance, or change something via UI (only some actions over API works).

Enter image description here

Also not possible to change storage type (over UI or API): Enter image description here

Any ideas how it can be fixed, without instance re-creation?

Dear Customer,

Thanks for reaching out to us via AWS re:Post. I just saw this post and checked with my peers and found the below info.

The minor version MySQL 8.0.29 release has been deprecated and that's the reason that you couldn't find the version in the list any more. At this point, recommendation is for customers that have visible symptoms of a crash we recommend they do a Point-In-Time-Restore ( ) to recover the database. Please accept my sincere apologies on behalf of AWS for the inconvenience caused by this.

When the new version is released and available on RDS we’ll inform you and the rest of our AWS community on our announcements page here:

If you would like to downgrade your instance to version 8.0.28, below options are available:

  1. Using Native MySQL import export tool:

You can use tools like mysqldump/Mydumper/Myloader to import and migrate from existing RDS MySQL instance on 8.0.29 to another instance on 8.0.28 version. Please kindly review the below documentation for more details: [+] Importing data from a MySQL or MariaDB DB to a MySQL or MariaDB DB instance -
[+] Importing Data to an Amazon RDS MySQL or MariaDB DB Instance with Reduced Downtime -

  1. Using AWS Database Migration Service:

Please use the below resources to get more familiar with DMS working and settings before getting stared with the service: [+] Migrate to an Amazon RDS or Aurora MySQL DB instance using AWS DMS:

Hope this helps in your project.
