I have a Confluence install version 6.1.3 with MySQL 5.6.36.
Now that Confluence supports MySQL 5.7 I am looking at doing a Confluence upgrade to current (6.4.3) and then migrating MySQL to 5.7.current.
Are there any issues or gotchas I should be aware of ?
I would agree with this. Basic strategy, upgrade confluence, copy the database over to a mysql 5.7 server and change the dbconfig.conf to the new location. This will give you a way back as well to a working version by swinging you db pointer if needed.
I presume you've read the database config for mysql.
