Aurora MySQL database engine update 2023-08-15 (version 2.07.10, compatible with MySQL 5.7.12)

Version: 2.07.10

Aurora MySQL 2.07.10 is generally available. Aurora MySQL 2.07 versions are compatible with MySQL 5.7.12. For more information on community changes, see Changes in MySQL 5.7.12 (2016-04-11, General Availability).


This version is designated as a long-term support (LTS) release. For more information, see Aurora MySQL long-term support (LTS) releases in the Amazon Aurora User Guide.

Currently supported Aurora MySQL releases are 2.07.*, 2.11.*, 3.01.*, 3.02.*, 3.03.*, and 3.04.*.

You can restore a snapshot from a currently supported Aurora MySQL release into Aurora MySQL 2.07.10. You also have the option to upgrade existing Aurora MySQL 2.* database clusters to Aurora MySQL 2.07.10. In-place upgrade is available for Aurora MySQL 1.* clusters to Aurora MySQL 2.* (see Upgrading from Aurora MySQL 1.x to 2.x). It's also available for Aurora MySQL 2.* clusters to Aurora MySQL 3.* (see Upgrading from Aurora MySQL 2.x to 3.x).

Immediately after an in-place engine version upgrade to Aurora MySQL 2.07.10 is performed, an operating system upgrade is applied automatically to all of the affected instances on the db.r4, db.r5, db.t2, and db.t3 DB instance classes, if the instances are running an old operating system version. In a Multi-AZ DB cluster, all of the reader instances apply the operating system upgrade first. When the operating system upgrade on the first reader instance is finished, a failover occurs and the previous writer instance is upgraded.


The operating system upgrade isn't applied automatically to Aurora global databases during major version upgrades.

If you have any questions or concerns, AWS Support is available on the community forums and through AWS Support. For more information, see Maintaining an Amazon Aurora DB cluster in the Amazon Aurora User Guide.
