    Are there generally any issues with moving cPanel accounts off of a server that is using MySQL 5.0 to a server that is running MySQL 5.5?

    I'm sure there is some risk involved simply because the versions are different. But generally speaking, does all of the data setup correctly from 5.0 to 5.5?

    For example, the user table in the mysql database. In MySQL 5.0 there looks to be 37 fields in this table. In MySQL 5.5 there are 42. Because this is mismatch will there be any problems with restoring cPanel accounts from a server that is using MySQL 5.0 to a cPanel servers that is running MySQL 5.5?

    (The user table that handles MySQL users is just an example of where a problem might pop up, are there others?)

    Hello :)

    There are generally no issues when transferring accounts from a server that uses MySQL 5.0 to a server that uses MySQL 5.5, however it's a good idea to backup your databases beforehand. The most likely issues you may encounter are errors or warnings on scripts that are not compatible with MySQL 5.5. The following document from MySQL is useful:

    Upgrading to MySQL 5.5

    Thank you.
