Upgrading MySQL And Using x64 Version

    I just did a fresh install of Plesk 8.2 on windows 2003 standard x64.

    I want to upgrade MySQL to the newest version and also use the 64 bit version of MySQL.

    I went to MySQL.com and downloaded the newest version of MySQL x64 and installed it.

    How can I tell/upgrade Plesk to use the 64 bit version I installed in: C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0 instead of the default 32 bit version in: C:\Program Files (x86)\SWsoft\Plesk\MySQL? Then I want to uninstall/remove the old MySQL version in the plesk folder.

    Thanks for the help.

    You need to register this instance of MySql server at Plesk: Plesk -> Server -> Database servers -> Add

    Download ZIP (without installer package) and replace %plesk_dir%\Databases\MySQL folder (except Data folder), also if necessary (while upgrading from 4 to 5 ) run upgrade script to fix privileges
