    upgrading mysql & php, by tamramc

    I have my own server with several sites for different users, most all are WordPress sites

    I tried updating mysql and php to latest versions but received Error connecting to Database for all sites

    reason being for main site, the following is displayed for a main plugin in dashboard:
    The minimum required MySQL version is 5.6 – your server has 5.5.44
    The recommended PHP version is 7 or higher – your server has 5.6.8

    thus I’m afraid to purchase additional plugins which may force update of both mysql and php which would cause a loss of use for all sites including an historic military site for a user.

    what is the best way to update all sites before or after update of both php and mysql?
    for now, I’ve backed up and exported content for all sites, some of which are using default WordPress themes, but others have custom themes.
