    Is there anyway to recompile the MySQL server on my CentOS cPanel installation to allow me to use 256-bit encryption without breaking anything?

    The MySQL website recommends that you remove any current MySQL installations and files before trying to recompile/install the server from binary, I don't want to remove/change anything that will annoy cPanel...

    An EasyApache equivalent would be ideal!

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Could you provide the link to the MySQL documentation you have referenced so we can verify the specific change you are attempting to make?

    Thank you.

    Hi

    The documentation from the MySQL website is as follows:


    MySQL :: MySQL 5.1 Reference Manual :: 2.2 Installing MySQL on Unix/Linux Using Generic Binaries

    https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/encryption-functions.html

    The exact part of the source you need to modify is:

    phpmyadmin - MySql AES_ENCRYPT 256 encryption - Stack Overflow


    Thanks

    I could not find any native support for this with the standard installation of MySQL completed through cPanel. You are welcome to manually build your own version of MySQL, but it's not something we could support. You can open a feature request for this via:

    Thank you.
