Upgrade MySQL from 4.1 to 5.1

Post by dbossesito » 2011/04/15 18:38:12


I have a new PE R210, and i want to run a copy of vtigerCRM. So i installed centos 4.8 (X86_64) for compatibility.
When i downloaded MySQL, i found that the version installed is the 4.1 but what i really need is the 5.1, cause i have
many functions on my DBs that MySQL 4.1 don't admit.

I has googled, but i cant find anything about upgrading mysql from 4.1 to 5.1.

Any help is apreciated.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading [url=https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=47]FAQ & Readme First[/url] is recommended for new users.

Note that [url=http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/General#head-fe8a0be91ee3e7dea812e8694491e1dde5b75e6d]end of life[/url] for CentOS 4 is less than a year away so it is not really recommended for new installs.

In direct answer to your question, the recommended reading should lead you to the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories]Repositories[/url] page where you can find 3rd party repos that have later packages. Jason Litka for one has 5.1 packages of EL4.
