How do I migrate a MySQL database from a Droplet to a Managed Database?
I’m pretty novice at using anything in the cloud. What I have right now is a Droplet that hosts a few databases that are running on MySQL 5.7. I’ve also got a managed database cluster now running MySQL 8. I want to migrate my databases from the Droplet to the database cluster. I can’t find any documentation to help me with that. I assume that’s because managed MySQL databases is a pretty new offering.
