Support for mysqlbackup and MySQL 5.7

(Doc ID 2073772.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

MySQL Workbench - Version 6.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to do an online backup with Workbench 6.3.5 or later and MySQL 5.7, an error results:

MySQL server versions 5.7 and later are not supported by mysqlbackup version installed on your system (your mysqlbackup version = X.X.X).

This error page does not contain any way to change to a supported version of MEB.


 If you already had an older version of MEB installed, it may mention that version number in the error. For a brand new installation with MEB 4.0 which has not yet been configured in Workbench, it may say version 0.0.0.
