My server:
CENTOS 5.10 i686 standard
WHM 11.42.1 (build 25)

I have downloaded MySQL Utilities and attempted to install.
The following is what I have done but receiving error:

Code:
wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQLGUITools/mysql-utilities-1.4.4.tar.gz
tar xvzf mysql-utilities*
cd mysql-utilities-1.4.4
chmod +x setup.py
./setup.py build
But receiving the following error:
Code:
./setup.py build
  File "./setup.py", line 234
    except DistutilsFileError as err:
                               ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Can anyone shed some light on what the issue may be?
If Python needs to be upgraded, what is the safe way of doing so?
Thanks

Hello :)

Have you tried installing the package through an RPM instead of from source? What installation instructions are you using?

Thank you.

Right, you have to install a repository that includes "mysql-utilities" if you want to install it through YUM. Have you considered installing the RPM directly and not through YUM?

MySQL :: MySQL Utilities :: 1 How to Install MySQL Utilities

Note that this application is not natively supported by cPanel.

Thank you.
