I have a new CentOS 6.6 server, with the latest cpanel/whm installed.

I tried to upgrade to MySQL 5.6 from WHM's option "MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade", but this procedure fails because the new rpms conflict with the installed rpms from percona.

Any suggestions please?

Thank you.

Well, I found the percona rpms and used "yum remove" to delete them. Then everything died, because... well that was the running SQL database! So I had to re-install the rpms.

I'm guessing that this centos 6.6 has percona pre-installed and as default database.

Is this percona sql supported by cpanel?
