No more custom packages in 11.36?

Hi,

We use Percona MySQL on our servers, however, in cPanel 11.36 update preferences, the option to select what package to update no longer is available, hence cPanel will replace/update everything with its packages.

Is that the case? No more custom packages?

Try the following steps.

1. Run "touch /etc/mysqlupdisable" from SSH as root.

2. Enter "MYSQLUP=never" to /etc/cpupdate.conf

If you have cPanel 11.36.0.4 on your server, the above should work ( check for case 63298 in changelog CPanelVersion1136 < AllDocumentation/ChangeLog < TWiki )

Those instructions don't work and shouldn't be followed. EasyApache breaks.
We followed those instructions and worked just fine (replacing MySQL with MariaDB). The only problem we had was actually a bug in MariaDB 5.5.29 that had to do with mysqli library. We fixed the problem by editing
Code:
/var/cpanel/easy/apache/rawopts/all_php5
and add
Code:
--with-mysqli=mysqlnd
, then easyapache worked flawlessly.

Well, that doesn't work for Percona.

Narrowing it down, EasyApache exits with: checking for mysql_config... not found

Code:
checking for mysql_config... not found
configure: error: Unable to find your mysql installation
EDIT: In order to have mysql_config, the devel package should be installed. The link provided by cpanelnick does not mention the devel package: Percona-Server-devel-55

It solves it and EasyApache works

Indeed , that's the case , i forgot to mention it since i didn't think "further" that some people might not know that. I for one always install all packages , example of mariadb:
Code:
[email protected] [~]# rpm -qa|grep MariaDB
MariaDB-server-5.5.30-1.x86_64
MariaDB-shared-5.5.30-1.x86_64
MariaDB-devel-5.5.30-1.x86_64
MariaDB-common-5.5.30-1.x86_64
MariaDB-client-5.5.30-1.x86_64
MariaDB-compat-5.5.30-1.x86_64
Basically you need to look at what packages you uninstall and then keep in mind to install the same packages from your desired alternative such as Percona or MariaDB.

Thank you for bringing the missing -devel package to our attention. I've asked for the article to be updated with that information.

I have updated the blog entry to include the Percona-Server-devel-55 package - in my testing it didn't appear to need this (or installed it automatically) previously.

Thanks for pointing this out!
