    Hi

    I am looking at possibly upgrading Apache and mySQL.

    I am currently using 4.1.22 or mySQL and Apache version 1.3.39.

    Are these currently the recommended versions or should I upgrade them to the latest (ie mySQL 5.1 and Apache 2.2.6).

    Also what are any potential pitfalls I should look out for.

    Presumably I should ensure backups of the databases as well as httpd.conf but is there anything else?

    Thanks in advance.

    Many threads on these forums discussing this. Have a look around using the search tools.

    I had looked around prior to posting. I found threads regarding Apache 2 but couldn't find anything regarding mySQL 5 as I was greatly hindered by the fact if I enter mySQL 5 into the search box I get an error because 5 is under 3 chars.

    I'd stick with Apache 2.2.6 and MySQL 4.1. Sure, 4.1 is old, but 5.0 still breaks a lot of applications.

    Ahh thanks a very handy post.

    Ah yes this is a concern I had. Prsumably this isn't a problem with Apache 2.x?
