    Right

    I decided I wanted to update from MySQL 4.0 to MySQL 4.1.

    Now I done what it told me (wait 30 seconds then press here sort of thing - i waited about 50 seconds) and then I clicked where it told me

    The problem now is - MySQL is no longer working and I don't know what I have done wrong! I tried the automatic install/upgrade from 'Tweak Settings' and that was it - now unfortunatly nothing is working, and im now very upset and panicing!

    Has anyone got any ideas how I can get everything back the way it was - I am never going to press another button ever again! I thought a simple upgrade (auto) from 4.0 to 4.1 would be easy - what could go wrong!

    Well now im stuck!

    Any ideas what I can/should do? I don't even know where to start!

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I'm new to cPanel but I think you need to update apache after that MySQL upgrade. At least I did on my new cPanel server.

    Be sure to select the correct apache modules and php complile settings, if you do.

    Hopefully someone with more cPanel experience will comment on this shortly.

    Go down to the Restart Sevices and hit the button SQL Server (MySQL).
    Try that a few times.

    If it won't start check your /tmp directory has permissions of 1777
    chmod /tmp 1777

    :)
