    Recently I upgraded to cpanel 11.25 which appears to have built in support for mysql 5.1.

    Prior to the new version I had manually upgraded mysql. Now that the new cpanel/whm supports Mysql 5.1, I'd like to re-enable automatic updates of mysql.

    I attempted to run /scripts/mysqlup and it started trying to install mysql 4.1!

    Looking through the forums I found a setting in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config for mysql version and changed that from 4.1 to 5.1.

    However, before I try running the script again I want to make sure there is nothing else I need to do to ensure the update will work correctly. Are there any other steps I need to take?

    I'm currently running mysql 5.1.37-log and would like to get up the most recent version 5.1.44
