    I just tried to upgrade to 5.0.16 but it gave me a error saying i can't due it due to a conflict with mysql 4.

    Can I not upgrade to PHP 5 while using MySQL 4?

    BTW which PHP build do you guys recommend?

    what's the actual error that you are getting? Can you paste it here?

    I have tried upgrading some of our user's Cpanel box previously to PHP 5.1.6 with mySQL 4.1.21 with no issues.

    Its due to mysqli, It seems there are certain versions of mysql that will allow the upgrade work fine. I usually downgrade to mysql 4.1.13 first and then you can compile any apache config you like without trouble.

    Yes, I should have mentioned i do run mysqlup --force after recompiling and it shoves it back to the latest without trouble.

    I was already on 4.1 so I just downloaded the 4.1.13 rpm and -Uvh. After that I just recompiled with easyapache

    wget http://downloads.mysql.com/archives/...ibc23.i386.rpm
    rpm -Uvh --force MySQL-devel-4.1.13-0.glibc23.i386.rpm

    then after the build, i forced the mysql upgrade after things were
    verified working.
    /scripts/mysqlup --force

    Now, if you are running mysql 5, I would suggest another method of downgrading
    via the control panel.

    Be sure to have full backups of everything before trying this.
