Upgrading a Major Version

Major versions cannot be upgraded on the management console. You can use Data Replication Service (DRS) to migrate databases from RDS for MySQL 5.6 to RDS for MySQL 5.7 smoothly. Before the migration, create a DB instance of the target version.

On the Instance Management page, click the instance you want to migrate. On the displayed Basic Information page, click Migrate Database in the upper right corner.

For more information, see Migrating Data to the Cloud in the Data Replication Service User Guide.
