    I am wondering, would it be safe to uninstall MySQL on a DNSONLY server, and reinstall a new version of it?

    Can the brute force be disabled to perform this?

    How would it be re-enabled afterwords?

    Hello :)

    Rather than reinstalling MySQL, you can simply update it by changing the "mysql-version=" line in the following file:

    Code:
    /var/cpanel/cpanel.config
    For example, if it's currently at 5.0, you can change it to 5.1. Then, run the following command:
    Code:
    # /scripts/mysqlup --force
    
    Thank you.

    Good idea, but its installed as a devel version, and I can't use that version for the script I am trying to use.. It also will not update to 5.1.39, says it doesn't exist

    IS the brute force the ONLY thing actually using the MySQL?

    Please provide if there is a workaround for this.
    I learned that the script I am running has to have MySQL uninstalled, and installed by the script for what I am trying to run. I can of course give WHM-DNSONLY access back to MySQL afterwords, but it has to uninstall first.

    cPHulk is the only component using MySQL on DNS only machines. If you do not require cPHulk Brute Force Protection, you could disable cPHulk and then utilize whatever MySQL version you prefer.
