We're still running MySQL (community server) on macOS 10.12 Sierra (because Apple has gutted later versions of macOS and macOS Server and we don't want to go there just yet). It appears the latest MySQL security updates (October 2018) no longer support macOS with the 5.6.x track. The 5.7.x and 8.x tracks now only list installers for 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave.
So, the question is: can you install the latest MySQL 5.7.24 on macOS 10.12 Sierra and will it run without problems?
I'm okay if it's simply "unsupported" and will install but if it specifically won't install/will cause problems I would like to know before upgrading. I've searched the MySQL web site for information on this but there is nothing.
I asked this question on the MySQL forums and got no response. I asked the question on StackOverflow but they recommended to post it here. Hope someone here can help.
