Upgrade MySQL?

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by Jason_I_Am, Jan 22, 2006.

    I've noticed my server contains MySQL 3.23.58! Obviously, this is quite old and I'd like to upgrade to at least 4.x (maybe 5?). Anywho, I have no idea what the process would be.
    - Is it safe to upgrade MySQL? Will Plesk shoot itself in the foot?
    - How would I go about upgrading it?

    I don't have access to psadump (see this thread for details) so I'm afraid I might break something and won't be able to restore it :(

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    yum update mysql

    is the easiest...

    Checkout http://atomicrocketturtle.com
    for a repo that's psa compatible

    may consider manually downloading and installing 4.0 rpms... (from art)
    4.1 can be a little tricky...

    mysql update

    After running our mySQL upgrade we had some problems.

    THEY ARE NOT related to the source. The problems are a mySQL problem.

    This is just a FYI so you will know ahead of time there COULD be a problem with the mySQL upgrade.
