Upgrade to PHP5/MySQL5 disaster

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by BadCat, May 29, 2008.

    We needed to upgrade to the latest version of PHP and MySQL (PHP5 and MySQL5). Using YUM we installed the latest versions. However, now there is an error with Plesk 8.0.1

    This is really urgent to fix, can anyone help at all???

    I think I need to upgrade to 8.1 (at lest) to make MySQL5 work. But HOW?? I can't create an account on the Parralels website to download the latest software - I get an errors.

    i could remove MySQL5 and revert back to MySQL4, but I'm not sure what YUM will remove when I do that.

    You are correct, PSA 8.1 is not compatible with mysql 5 (I marked the atomic mysql rpms up for this condition specifically). You'll have to downgrade to mysql 4, then update PSA to 8.3 or above.

    If for some reason mysql cannot handle the downgrade because of a db file change, you have a running 7 day backup of mysql in /var/lib/psa/dumps/.
