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

For more information about dedicated proxy versions, see Release notes for dedicated proxy versions.


The upgrade causes a restart of the proxy instances that are enabled on the RDS instance. During the restart process, a 30-second transient connection occurs. The time when the proxy instances restart varies based on the value of the Upgrade Time parameter. You can select Upgrade Immediate or Upgrade within maintenance period for the parameter. 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. Visit the RDS instance list, select a region above, and click the target instance ID.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Database Proxy.
  3. Click Upgrade Dedicated Proxy Version.
  4. In the dialog box that appears, set the Upgrade Time parameter and click OK.
