    MySQL5

    Does cPanel currently have support for MySQL 5.0 databases? If not, is there a plan to implement that? It was just made availabe for production use today.

    Thanks

    If it was made available for production use today how could Cpanel already be supporting it? You should probably stop asking for new features. They have enough to worry abour right now and i dont think support from v5 will be considered for awhile. Besides, what software applications do you know of support v5? I doubt many as most of us are still trying to get a breather after the implamentation of v4.1.

    Whoa, calm down. Share the love here :).

    Cpanel isn't too good with getting production software running in cpanel. Look at apache2. Although it oly took cpanel a month or so to get mysql 4 working with cpanel... Guess we can only wait.

    Lol

    Whoa, I thought I was watching a episode of the Daily Show.

    :confused: Turn on the bad word filter. Replace 'assh0l3' with 'nice guy'. :)

    I noticed there is a missing smilely icon, maybe put a boot icon? :D

    Submitted request to cpanel

    FYI I submitted a request to cPanel for mysql 5 support via the bugzilla system:
    http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=3405

    I was surprised to find that nobody else had submitted the request yet ... Anyway, vote for the bug and hopefully they'll treat it with higher priority.

    Thanks.

    Note: Many scripts that use MySQL won't work right now with MySQL5. I certainly wouldn't upgrade my servers until I know that MySQL5 support is fairly widespread even if MySQL5 were offered as an option in CPANEL.

    Agreed


    I completely 100% agree with this. MySQL caused a bunch of errors in Oscommerce to poke up and Oscommerce being worst in releasing new versions was something that had to be manually repaired.

    I would say that it would be about another year for 5 to even emerge as an option.

    To upgrade to MySQL 5 would be cutting our throats. Many if not most of the applications dont work with v5. That includes Modernbill and a probably 100% of those applications installable via Fantastico.

    BugZilla? It would have been a feature request not a bug fix. Why would you submit it to Bugzilla? Also, since 99% of all applications are not v5 compliant why would you want it installed? Any applications you know that work with it, 100% without problems?

    Actually...

    More like being hung upside down by a hook and prodded with hot pokers and then having our heads cut off and used in soup.

    Not to mention all the inevitable bugfix releases that should come soon for MySQL5.

    If you're a developer, you probably care about MySQL 5 (and you should). For your average hosting customer all they know/care (in my experience) is that this "database" thing works with their favorite software.

    Ask your hosting clients if they know what the difference between MySQL 3, 4, and 5 is and most of them I'd bet won't have any idea.

    A lot of the people I work with don't even know what MySQL is, really. If I told them "we're upgrading to MySQL 5, but right now your forum, blog, etc. won't work with it and we'll have to update fairly frequently to fix outstanding bugs" they would tell me to stop that darn crazy talk and go look for a company that would let them run their forum and stop bothering them with such complete nonsense.

    Eventually, cPanel will need to handle MySQL 5, but that time is a long way off. I'd rather see them do private testing to make sure cPanel can handle it when the time to transition does come so that the process can be a bit smoother than the initial transition from 4.0 to 4.1 was.

    I typically tell the people I work with to hold off for a while on upgrading to major new versions of software because there are always lots of kinks to work out at first. The same will be true of the transition from MySQL 4.x to 5. I certainly don't want to be the ginnea pig!

    Doesn't have to be mandatory

    I don't think anybody is suggesting a mandatory upgrade from mysql 4.0/4.1 to mysql 5. But choices are good -- if cpanel can simply offer it as a choice the exact same way they do now for 4.0 vs. 4.1, then I think many customers will be happy.

    Also keep in mind that MySQL's release cycle is much different from many other open source apps (such as PHP) which often release major new versions only to be quickly followed up with bugfix releases, etc. MySQL's 5.0 db server has been in development and testing for a looong time. My hat's off to them in that they respect the implications of such a major unleashing on the community.

    Warning: Invision Power Board/community blog/gallery will NOT work with MySQL 5.0 due to the changed left joins. It is easily fixable by modifying the mysql driver file however.

    I currently run MySQL 5.0 with IPB however I had to do an edit.

    Most others will not work either.

    Regards,
    Alan

    What's with the urgency to upgrade to MySQL 5.0? You are some developer that actually uses those new features? OR you thought that the upgrade would make your server run faster? Or you are just one of those upgrade geeks who thinks upgrading is GOOD?
