    According to my provider, MySQL v4.1.22 is not supported. It has been out since November 2, 2006. The latest that shows in WHM is v4.1.21.

    do this trick (at your own risk):
    - change update config to latest beta
    - from shell run /scripts/mysqlup
    - change update config back to your preference.

    Thanks for responding but that really has nothing to do with my question. I am questioning when cPanel plans on supporting v4.1.22, not v5.x.

    You can better go to 5x version because mysql wouldn't support version 4.1.x anymore.

    On the contrary, MySQL is continuing to support v4.1.x as to fixes which is all I am interested in.

    For those interested, here's a link to the MySQL Lifecycle Policy which may clarify aspects of this conversation:

    http://www.mysql.com/company/legal/lifecycle/

    MySQL 4.1 is supported by the folks at MySQL to a limited extent through the end of 2009 (see "Extended Lifecycle timeframe").

    However, if you prefer something that's supported to a greater degree by the folks at MySQL, MySQL 5 is the way to go as it is still classified under the "Active Lifecycle timeframe".

    The primary reason for my pointing out MySQL 5 is because MySQL 4.1 is now EOL (End of Life)

    This means that MySQL v4.1 is no longer supported by the people who make MySQL
    and there will be no further updates or security patches released for that version series
    and most all support requests will fall upon deaf ears outside of minimal generic question
    answering and simply directing you to the old written MySQL v4.1 documentation and
    by 2009, they won't even do that and just tell you to upgrade ... period.

    Because of this, it is STRONGLY recommended you go ahead and move on to MySQL 5.

    On the brighter side, I was one of the longest hold outs for MySQL 5 and refused to upgrade for
    ages upon ages and then we finally threw in the towel and upgraded about 6 months ago and
    haven't been happier.

    The great news is that after upgrading hundreds of servers we own and dealing with tens of thousands
    of customer applications, I have not run into so much as a single application that has any problems
    whatsoever running MySQL 5 to my pleasant surprise and that even includes those thought to be
    difficult apps such as IPB who previously swore they were not MySQL 5 compatible!
