    Hello,

    We have a server with php 5.2 and mysql 5.0.
    We need to upgrade mysql to 5.1.
    It is possible without user's data risk ?

    Thank you.-

    There is always a risk with any upgrade and so you should dump your databases beforehand, however this is normally a very straightforward upgrade. I'd recommend actually upgrading to 5.5 afterwards whilst you're at it as 5.1 is end of life this year.

    Hello :)

    Yes, it's always recommended that you backup your MySQL databases before major upgrades. Remember to use the following option to upgrade MySQL:

    "WHM Home » Software » MySQL Upgrade"

    This option will warn you of potential issues you may face when upgrading MySQL.

    Thank you.
