This topic describes how to upgrade the dedicated proxy version of an ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL instance.


The dedicated proxy feature is enabled for your RDS instance. For more information, see Enable the dedicated proxy of an ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL instance.


The upgrade causes a restart of the proxy instances that are enabled on your RDS instance. During the restart process, a transient connection of about 30 seconds occurs. The time when the proxy instances restart varies based on the specified Upgrade Time. You can select Upgrade Immediate or Upgrade within maintenance period. We recommend that you perform the upgrade during off-peak hours. Otherwise, make sure that your application is configured to automatically reconnect to your database system.


  1. Go to the Database Proxy page.
