    I have had a request to either make a user a "super user" under MYSQL 5.0 which is on my system, or upgrade to version 5.1. Are there any plans for cPanel to upgrade to 5.1, or is this something I can safely do. Or can/should I make the user a "super user." Sorry for basic questions -- I am still learning obviously.

    You can utilize the following option in Web Host Manager to upgrade MySQL to version 5.1 or higher:

    "WHM » Software » MySQL Upgrade"

    This interface attempts to walk you through the process of upgrading to a new major release.

    Thank you.

    Related question: how would one determine the latest version of MySQL CPanel will install? I know what version I'm running, but if there's a later minor version out there, how would I go about seeing if it's available in CPanel?

    Yea stick to the WHM Mysql Option. Don't be too hasty to try newer versions as it may break things
