upgrading from 10.0.38 to 10.3.12
I have a database server with version ==> MySQL Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.0.38-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1
I know a lot of things have changed and I'm going to migrate all databases from old to the new one. The problem is, whichever tool I want to use ask for some variables which don't have in the old version like binlog_row_image and I need to use those tools to have zero downtime.
It will be okay to upgrade any 10.1.x version or higher to use such tools.
