Will not allow MySQL update to 5.1.
/etc/mysqlupdisable does not exist.
/etc/cpupdate.conf is deprecated and ignored.

Hello :)

You can try the following steps:

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

Code:
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:

Code:
/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.

Edited to Add: Please keep in mind this is a manual workaround for DNS-Only servers. This method is not advised for non-DNSONLY servers.

Thank you.
