PostgreSQL Release Notes

October 2023

6 October

  • PostgreSQL 11 is now deprecated. Starting on 6 November 2023, all existing PostgreSQL 11 database clusters will automatically upgrade to PostgreSQL 15 during the cluster’s upgrade window.

September 2023

29 September

  • The following MySQL and PostgreSQL plans are now deprecated:

    • MySQL and PostgreSQL plans with 8 vCPUs, 32 GB RAM, and 600 GB SSD ($480 per month)
    • MySQL and PostgreSQL plans with 16 vCPUs, 64 GB RAM, and 1220 GB SSD ($960 per month)

    All of your existing database clusters with these plans are still functional and accessible to you. However, you cannot resize them. To regain access to these features, fork your database to a new cluster with a supported plan. For more detailed steps, see our guides on how to fork MySQL databases and fork PostgreSQL databases.

  • When creating or resizing MySQL or PostgreSQL clusters on DigitalOcean, you can now add additional storage independently from your chosen database configuration plan. This provides a more economic option for increasing storage, rather than upgrading your cluster’s entire plan.

    For more details, see our guides on how to resize MySQL clusters and resize PostgreSQL clusters.

        "sql_require_primary_key": true
