    Hello,


    This is my first post, so sorry if its in the wrong place.

    Anyway;

    I need to upgrade MySQL from v4 to v5, i have been told that this is possible but it might break the connections in cPanel. How would i upgrade to v5 and will cPanel be messed up? And is there anything else I should know?

    I have the latest version of cPanel / WHM running CentOS v4.1, and the latest version of mysql that comes with cPanel / WHM.

    The reason I need v5 is because version 5 supports Procedurces and v4 doesnt.

    Thanks in advanced.

    CPanel is not compatible with mysql 5x. Mysql 5x is still on beta.

    Why?

    Why isnt it though? And MySQL 5 isnt still in BeTa theres a full public release already. There is beta versions for the newest release.

    When will cPanel support MySQL 5 then?


    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    Unless someone happens by, you're better off contacting them directly and asking when or whether they're looking at v5 integration at present.
