    Since mysql has released the stable version of mysql 5.1 database server, when is cpanel going to support it (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/)?
    We are already using a RC of mysql 5.1 on our server, and is dangerous to update it...

    hmmm good questions.

    I also need to know the answer to that.

    Can you just your config file and then the update wont "break" it ?
    vi /var/cpanel/cpanel.config

    and set

    mysql-version=5.1

    /scripts/mysqlup --force


    I have NOT tried this though.

    more complicated then that...

    Well, I don't think it would be so easy:
    The problem is that by now you then have to:
    1. Setup cpanel to stop updating mysql
    2. Recomplie php with mysql 5.1 support, and easy_apache ussualy fails to do it
    3. Update CPanel so that the system php handles mysql 5.1 (for phpMyAdmin)
    First time I had 2 days downtime on the server because of that :(.
    I just want everything automatic...

    I totally agree...

    why not submit a "support request" to Cpanel and ask them there ?
    then post their response here.

    I did ask them a few weeks ago and they said they are busy "testing" mysql 5.1...

    so hopefully it will be out soon.
