I've done searching for this issue, and found these instructions:

Code:
You can try the following steps:

1. Modify the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file so that the following line exists:

mysql-version=5.1
Note that you should modify the "mysql-version" entry to 5.1 if an entry for 5.0 already exists.

2. Run the following command:

/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
It should prompt you to update the MySQL RPMs. Keep in mind that you should backup your existing databases before upgrading to a new version of MySQL.
but - I don't have the file check_cpanel_rpms on my server. My WHM is 11.30.8.0 according to the top left (though before i tried the upgrade it said 11.28..).. and i have the message that says the upgrade was blocked. is there another file I'm supposed to use?

Hello :)

I recommend upgrading to cPanel version 11.34 first. Update the "CPANEL=" entry in /etc/cpupdate.conf to the following:

Code:
CPANEL=11.34
Save the file, and then force an update of cPanel via:

Code:
/scripts/upcp --force
If this completes successfully, then update the "CPANEL=" entry back to what it was before and try the steps you mentioned again.

Thank you.

Thank you Michael. That worked for me now. I'm not updated to 11.42.0 (build 24)
