Upgrade from MySQL 5.5

Hi

I think I may be running into problems because my MYSQL databases are on version 5.5 and I'm running Django 2.2 which requires MySQL 5.6.

I'm getting an error when trying to run

python manage.py migrate

from one of my web apps.

Would it be possible to move to MySQL version 5.6?

Hi ! I would like version 5.7 also. I was upgrading to a PWA and we store and send .json from our api all the time.
