The following settings files in the project codebase can be used to override default MySQL settings:
examples/.docksal/etc from the Docksal project repo into the
folder in your project repo and modify as necessary.
Apply changes with
fin project restart (
fin p restart).
When using the default stack (a custom project stack is not defined in
.docksal/docksal.yml), switching can be done
DB_IMAGE variable in
This can also be set with
fin config set.
fin config set DB_IMAGE='docksal/db:1.1-mysql-5.7'
Remember to run
fin project start (
fin p start) to apply the configuration.
Different MySQL versions may not be fully compatible. A complete
db service reset (
fin project reset db) might be necessary
followed by a DB re-import.
There are also “edge” versions available that contain code from ongoing updates, but may not be stable. Don’t switch to an edge image unless directed to do so by the Docksal team for testing purposes only.
