Why do I need to upgrade local mysql to 8 to access managed database?
I’m confused as to why my local environment needs to upgrade the mysql version to 8.0 in order to connect to DO managed database?
Is this because the way DO makes the connection isn’t via SSH? It just seems a bit silly that you’re paying for an external server to run your database, but yet, any instance that wants to connect with it also has to run the same version of the database.
Am I missing something?
