When trying to upgrade from 3.8.3+ to 3.10+ in Azure, I am getting error 'version 5.7 is required and you are running 184.108.40.206'.
In the service, a gateway is used to redirect the connections to server instances. After the connection is established, the MySQL client displays the version of MySQL set in the gateway, not the actual version running on your MySQL server instance. To determine the version of your MySQL server instance, use the
SELECT VERSION(); command at the MySQL prompt.
