    I just upgraded mysql from 4.1 to 5.0.51a on my CentOS/WHM server. I used the check-box in Tweak Settings. However, I would like to bring this to the current release, 67. Can I simply install the 67 rpm's (seems like mysql on whm/cpanel hosts are NOT installed with rpm's). Or, is there another scripted or straight forward process to get up to the current mysql release? My reason is that I have some new potential clients with various sites that have been built on the latest and I would like t ensure/guarantee a seamless installation.

    I believe there's a user-generated thread that discusses how to install the RPMs manually.

    At this time, we are still QA'ing 5.0.67 before it hits the production-worthy builds (CURRENT, RELEASE, STABLE).

    Just a note, if you are concerned about the 2 major bugs in 5.0.51a, we did backport fixes for those issues into the build of MySQL used on cPanel/WHM servers.
