Its done I think :D

Okay, I sorted out it. I had to upgrade following RPM's by downloading those from any RPM providers from net.

[email protected] [~]# rpm -qa |grep -i mysql
MySQL-shared-5.0.84-0.glibc23
MySQL-bench-5.0.84-0.glibc23
MySQL-devel-5.0.84-0.glibc23
MySQL-server-5.0.84-0.glibc23
MySQL-client-5.0.84-0.glibc23

I got a lot of PERL module dependencies and none of them were installed through cpan or WHM>>Install Perl Module and /scripts/perlinstaller.

I had to install all of the perl module dependencies from RPM sources.

Like:
#wget ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/epel/4/i386/perl-Net-Daemon-0.44-7.el4.noarch.rpm
--19:38:09-- ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/epel/4/i386/perl-Net-Daemon-0.44-7.el4.noarch.rpm

#rpm -Uvh perl-Net-Daemon-0.44-7.el4.noarch.rpm

#rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp...ag/RPMS/perl-PlRPC-0.2020-1.el5.rf.noarch.rpm

and then I downloaded these RPM's and installed them by rpm -Uvh:

MySQL-bench-5.0.84-0.glibc23.x86_64.rpm
MySQL-client-5.0.84-0.glibc23.x86_64.rpm
MySQL-devel-5.0.84-0.glibc23.x86_64.rpm
MySQL-server-5.0.84-0.glibc23.x86_64.rpm
MySQL-shared-5.0.84-0.glibc23.x86_64.rpm

Don't use '--nodeps' option.

and now it is working fine :)

To testlog_4u: you can find information on the cPanel product branches elsewhere on the forum or our documentation.

EDGE is not recommended for production servers. EDGE is the equivalent of public beta and should only be run by experienced system administrators. You can expect things to break spectacularly on EDGE.
