Are you using MySQL 8.0 or newer? You’re in luck. AdRotate now supports it even better…
MySQL is the tool that stores all your websites data. It’s a database server. Newer versions of MySQL changed how certain queries work and AdRotate 5.8.5 now supports those newer methods. Not much has changed for it really, but the old way is no longer functional 🙁
The new way is fully functional on older MySQL versions so no weird gimmicks are required and there is no immediate need to update your MySQL database just yet…
Staying up-to-date is important. Many plugins and themes are updated every day. Updates are important for your websites security. But often they also add new or improve features as well.
Updates are available via your dashboard and (usually) require no special skills to install, this makes it extremely easy to keep your site secure and have the latest features.
