  • Error Description:

By default, the TiDB version format is: 5.7.${mysql_latest_minor_version}-TiDB-${tidb_version}.

In fact, this part is hardcoded in the code:

ServerVersion = fmt.Sprintf(“5.7.25-TiDB-%s”, TiDBReleaseVersion)

The current local version is Server version: 5.7.25-TiDB-v7.2.0 TiDB Server (Apache License 2.0) Community Edition, MySQL 8.0 compatible

However, at the time of the 7.2 release, the MySQL version had already reached 5.7.42

Release date: June 29, 2023
TiDB version: 7.2.0
Changes in MySQL 5.7.43 (2023-07-18, General Availability)
Changes in MySQL 5.7.42 (2023-04-18, General Availability)

// The default TiDBVersion is 5.7.25-TiDB-${TiDBReleaseVersion}.

How can I find the hardcoded parts?

While compiling TiDB, I wanted to change the version number, so I looked it up…

| username: zhanggame1 | Original post link

Isn’t the version number just changed in the configuration file?

Definitely a documentation content bug.

Yes, but I want to seek a different path.
