  • Hi Omer_a,

    Replicas must be the same version per the Data-In replication Requirements. If you are just wanting to create read replicas, then there is no documented version requirement but data-in replication has a version requirement.

    • The master server version must be at least MySQL version 5.6.
    • The master and replica server versions must be the same. For example, both must be MySQL version 5.6 or both must be MySQL version 5.7.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions.
