I have a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 and cpanel stable
Yum default repository provides me with mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.45, but I need to install mysql 5.2 on this server
Which is the smoothest way to do it? I would not want to screw cpanel updates or yum update style. I suppose that installing from source is out-of question

Thanks in advance

The latest version supported by cPanel is 5.0.45, so it would not be recommended to upgrade to that version. However, if you are still really trying to, then the only way to do so would be to install it manually or an rpm package.

This is however untested and could pose issues.

I think it should be available under edge.

(But it's not, Since EDGE is testing only I see no reason for forking beta/alpha softwares)

But I guess the support tickets would go true the rof hehe
