Migration failed update from 5.19.3 to 5.22.1

Hi,

When I try to update my ghost from 5.19.3 to 5.22.1, I encounter the following error:

Ghost Version

5.19.3

Node.js Version

v16.18.0

Database type

MySQL 8 (AWS RDS)

The default SQL mode in MySQL 8.0 includes these modes: ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY, STRICT_TRANS_TABLES, NO_ZERO_IN_DATE, NO_ZERO_DATE, ERROR_FOR_DIVISION_BY_ZERO, and NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION.

Ghost expects the default sql mode, and requires STRICT_TRANS_TABLES

I’ve just update sql_mode to default value and now it works!
