On project P, I wrote a Slack message about how to deploy our WordPress-based website. I included all the env variables they'd need to set.

However, I failed to mentioned that mysql needed to be a non-standard version (5.7 instead of 8). Of course, they'd provisioned 8 already.

Lesson:

Give version numbers when describing deploy steps to others.
