    Any chance that CPanel will upgrade from 4.0.15? I know I could do it manually via rpm but am interested to know why CPanel hasn't invoked the upgrade yet.

    i'm also interested in when mysql 4.0.17 or newer version will be installed automatically by cpanel?
    if they're working on it,i can wait for some time,but if it's not in near future i'll do the rpm install,which i dont want to.

    Where do you get the RPM I might just use that to upgrade if they don't start upgrading it here soon

    Why is everyone always so antsy about having the latest version as soon as it comes out? Don't you worry about deploying that stuff on a production server? I am perfectly content to have darkorb release the updates when they are sure it isn't going to break anything. I'm sure many people would blame them if it did.

    Bugfixes.

    No. That's what non-production servers are for. I like to do my own testing as well.

    That's fine - but it appeared as though cpanel was 'frozen in time', so to speak. Some folks like updates too.

    Not only bugfixes, but performance and sometimes security updates as well.

    Then why can't you manually do the upgrade? Why does cPanel have to do it for you? I love cpanel updates to software, but not if they're not tested first.

    The issue isn't cant - the issue is 'why I don't want to manually update a bunch of servers when cpanel does it for me'.

    That's the same as asking 'why can't you manually make your own control panel and push it out?' - not a good argument. I pay for cpanel, they provide the service. Generally, I'm happy with the service - that doesn't mean that I wouldn't like to see mysql updated to fix the bugs in the version that's been running forever.

    Again, some people like to test things themselves, rather than just blindly accpept that something's stable from a manufacturer.

    I hope I had some ;)

    Indeed. I do this often.

    I don't believe anyone in this thread was asking to be a 'guinea pig'. Strawman argument ;)

    Not updating when bugfixes are available and not explaining why is 'frozen in time'.

    Like the DNS clustering system, that we have this as the total sum of documentation on, and was displaying errors to clients?:
    http://www.cpanel.net/docs/dnsclustering-quickstart/
    :)

    All I'm saying is that they didn't update mysql for a long time - I haven't run the upgrade script on anything but test machines so far, FWIW. That and you shouldn't trust cpanel explicitly anyway - they could push out an update tonight that causes issues on your server. Best to test.

    I don't recall saying "Lets test everything on Baileys machines!" :D


    Again, I do run testing versions on testing machines ;) Never thought I'd get flamed so heavily for wondering when cpanel was going to get around to updating mysql :)

    I don't believe I ever said 'Cpanel, please put buggy stuff on everyones servers without ample testing'. ;) I simply stated that we were on .15 for a long time, and that I'd like to see an upgrade. I don't think I'm out of line for asking to to a company that I pay ;)


    I'm not against due caution, but there's a reason I don't run debian stable either ;) I haven't seen reports of real issues with the versions between .15 and where it is now.

    Just surprised at the backlash I'm getting for wondering why we were on that version and not upgraded..
