Update mysql 5.1.69 to 5.5.31 or higher

Post by arpee1 » 2015/05/01 20:17:43

Is there any official or best practice way to upgrade without any issues a mysql server from version 5.1.69 to 5.5.31 or higher. And if so from which repository?

Yum update will bring you to 5.1.73.
That is the only one supported.

The IUS Community repo has replacement mysql packges for CentOS 6. They have mysql55* and mysql56* available. I think that you can also get mysql55 from SCL.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
