Hi,

Does anyone know why upcp last night forced clients running v4.0 of mySQL to upgrade to v4.1 of mySQL without any warning at all?

I'm sure there must be a good reason, but I'm not impressed that it was done with no announcement - So is the client whose site it broke for several hours whilst we worked out what had gone on.

Thanks,

Which version of cpanel are you using? I recall setting up a test server sometime ago and it had only options for mysql 4.1 and mysql 5.0. Most people should be planning the migration to mysql 5.x soon.

There is no reason to be using MySQL 4.0x anymore, migration is very straight forward and as carluk said, most will choose to migrate to MySQL 5x soon for improvements.
