mysql upgrade

Post by bmil » 2008/05/14 14:24:20

I'm running CentOS5Web/image.manifest.xml instance. Default mysql is mysql-5.0.22-2.1.0.1. When I
upgarde mysql (yum upgrade mysql) I get

No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

Than I downloaded MySQL-client-5.1.24-0.glibc23.i386.rpm, MySQL-devel-5.1.24-0.glibc23.i386.rpm
MySQL-server-5.1.24-0.glibc23.i386.rpm MySQL-shared-compat-5.1.24-0.glibc23.i386.rpm

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

A MySQL server package (mysql-server-5.0.22-2.1.0.1) is installed.

The current MySQL server package is provided by a different
vendor (CentOS) than MySQL AB. Some files may be installed
to different locations, including log files and the service
startup script in /etc/init.d/.

When ca we expect mysql 5.1 upgrade?

Never.

The whole point about an Enterprise class OS is to maintain version stability throughout the life of the product.

CentOS 6 will likely have a newer version of MySQL.

run yum with [b]update[/b] instead of upgrade , this should install mysql-5.0.22-2.2.el5_1.1.i386.rpm

OK, I get the whole enterprise thing. For those of us who want to use a newer version of mysql anyway (for me, I want to use some clustering features which are more stable in mysql 5.1.24) what is the suggested path? Download the tarballs and do it from scratch? Modify the 5.0.X srpm and then shoehorn in the new source tree? Download the RHEL5 packages from mysql.com? Something else?

This is for a test environment, not for production, but I thought I would ask the CentOS whoppers for some advice on the "least intrusive method."

Best,

If you really want 5.1 then I would uninstall all the mysql software installed currently and get everything from
mysql.com or an official mirror.

I would personally use the rpm install but that's just preference.

RH/CentOS RPM are not build the same way than MySQL ones.

Look : http://blog.famillecollet.com/post/2008/04/19/mysql-5124-01rc

CentOS 5 version available in remi-test repo.

You also need the mysqlclient15 compatibility library for apps. build againts mysql 5.0 (php and others)
