After trying to upgrade mySQL, I always get
Code:
WARNING: A running easyapache process was detected. Please wait for easyapache to finish before attempting to upgrade MySQL.

If you are certain that the easyapache is no longer running, you may restart the MySQL upgrade by clicking the following button.
php and mySQL doesn't work now, and the 'Ignore Current Upgrade' button doesn't work, so in SSH I run....
Code:
-bash-3.2# ps aux | grep easyapache
root     29374  0.0  0.1   7216   832 pts/0    S+   22:23   0:00 grep easyapache
-bash-3.2# kill 29374
-bash: kill: (29374) - No such process
-bash-3.2# ps aux | grep easyapache
root     29393  0.0  0.1   7216   832 pts/0    S+   22:23   0:00 grep easyapache
-bash-3.2# kill 29393
-bash: kill: (29393) - No such process
The process number just keeps changing so I can't kill it and upgrade mySQL.

Greetings,

The process you are trying to kill is only your grep command. It won't ever find that. Please open a support ticket using the link in my signature below. We will log on to your server and investigate this problem and help you get it fixed.

Hello :)

You can check to see if the following file exists:

Code:
/usr/local/apache/AN_EASYAPACHE_BUILD_IS_CURRENTLY_RUNNING
If this file exists, and there are no active EasyApache processes, then you may need to manually remove the above file and run EasyApache again.

Thank you.

Thanks

-bash-3.2# cd /usr/local/apache/
-bash-3.2# pico AN_EASYAPACHE_BUILD_IS_CURRENTLY_RUNNING
-bash-3.2# rm AN_EASYAPACHE_BUILD_IS_CURRENTLY_RUNNING

did it. Then I re-installed 5.1 and it went all the way through with no trouble.
