While setting up an elastic beanstalk environment in AWS, it is possible to start it with an RDS instance, so RDS configurations will be present in the elastic beanstalk's config panel.
While setting up the RDS, it is possible to choose a snapshot I would like to be loaded.
It seems that I can only choose snapshots which have the same MySQL version as the new RDS instance.
Is it possible to workaround this limit? I would like to start an RDS instance with the most recent version of MySQL from an old-versioned MySQL instance. All I need is its data. That's it.
