    cPanel only supports one instance of MySQL. Does anyone have experience of installing a second instance of MySQL outside of cPanel? e.g. 5.0 in cPanel and 4.1 outside.

    (In case you're wondering why I want to do this: I want to provide an upgrade path for customers. cPanel supports PHP4 and 5 on the same server, which is great. As I migrate 100+ domains from Plesk (PHP4 + MySQL 4.1) to a new server with cPanel (PHP4/5 + MySQL 5.0), I need to provide legacy support for my customers. I have experience adding extra MySQL instances on separate sockets/ports on development servers, but not production servers and not cPanel. Hints tips and cautions would be welcome.)

    Thanks, Paul.
