    Will MySQL 4.1 continue to work with cPanel 11.25? Has it been test with cPanel 11.25?

    I just have a couple of client servers that are still running MySQL 4.1. I would just as prefer to upgrade those to MySQL 5.0, but they are not servers that I run, I just manage them. If cPanel 11.25 will not work with MySQL 4.1, then this would provide a good reason to do the upgrade on those servers.

    I noted in the 11.25 release notes:

    (page 25 of the release notes)

    and that made me wonder if MySQL 4.1 is compatible with 11.25.

    MySQL 4.1

    Hello,

    In order to really give you a good answer I would have to get more information on your install. This can be done, but unless this is a new machine it will cause problems. Please specify what you are trying to accomplish.

    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    What kind of information?

    This is a cPanel server that had MySQL 4.1 installed on it, but was never upgraded to MySQL 5.0. It used to be, cPanel instaleld MySQL 4.1 when it was installed. I suppose now it installs MySQL 5.0 (even before 4.1 it installed 4.0). If you had an older server, one that was not installed with cPanel and MySQL 5.0, it would have installed MySQL 4.1. The upgrade to MySQL 5.0 is an optional upgrade. /scripts/upcp does not automatically upgrade MySQL to 5.0, you have to specifically change the cpanel configuration and run /scripts/mysqlup to upgrade MySQL.

    I'm not sure what other information you need.

    I'm just wanting to know if MySQL 4.1 will work with cPanel 11.25. I understand that as newer and newer software is developed that older and older software becomes obsolete. I understand that cPanel 11.25 is a rather significant upgrade. It is probably doubtful that cPanel 11.25 has been tested on a MySQL 4.1 system. Are there specific routines in cPanel 11.25 that require a MySQL 5.0 database server in order to work properly?

    I am wanting to know about this beforehand. If the servers need to be MySQL 5.0 before installing cPanel 11.25, then I want to upgrade those servers to MySQL 5.0 before upgrading to cPanel 11.25.

    I am running 4.1 on one of my test machines without issue (running 11.25.1 beta).

    I have a question that's the reverse.

    Are you folks going to begin to support and allow updates to MySQL 5.1, now in a GA version, and PHP 5.3.

    More and more software is designed for these two versions, so when will we see them made available?

    Peace,
    Gene

    The scripts removed have long ago been supplanted by /scripts/mysqlup. Since the older scripts had various defects and no longer served a purpose, they were removed.

    We'll clarify that in the release notes to prevent further confusion. Thank you for raising this issue.

    Hi there. MySQL Extended Support ends on 2009-12-31:
    MySQL :: MySQL Lifecycle Policy

    I wanted to know if this will impact on mysql support from within cPanel. I guess you all folks will recommend the upgrade. What have you planned for the 4.1 branch?

    There are no plans at this time to remove support for MySQL 4.1, nor for MySQL 4.0.

    Hi Guys

    I just did a new isntall of 11.25, but client has scripts not compatible with mysql 5.0. I did what I normally do which is to change the cpanel config manually to 4.1 and run mysqlup and this did downgrade mysql, however, horde is broken, reporting errors that th tables were created in a newer version of mysql and they cannot be read or dumped.

    Is there a fix for that?

    Is there by any chance a release date for the CURRENT and RELEASE branches for 11.28?

    Peace,
    Gene
