  • Notes for upgrading mysql 5.0.22 to 5.0.85

    How can i proceed upgrading from mysql 5.0.22 to mysql 5.0.85?

    I fail to understand what you are actually asking about.
    But since you are still within the 5.0 branch I don't think you would encounter any big surprises.

        You backup your databases.
        You uninstall the older version and install the newer version.

        Since it is still within version 5.0 you shouldn't need to perform anything else.

        BTW: 5.0.85 is not the latest version of MySQL, 5.1 has been GA for quite a while now. But then you will need to perform a few extra steps to upgrade the grant tables.

          Right, I'm aware about 5.1.
          Just wondering about how to do upgrades within same major version!
          Uninstall and Reinstall is little more than what I was expecting for. I thought some patch will do the job.
          Thanks!

            Well I think it's pretty easy. Whatever your OS is the installation procedures with the precompiled packages are quite simple.
            But by your comment about a patch it sounds like you are compiling your own MySQL and if you do then I can understand that it's much more work. And at the same time if you are not using any special features that are only available when compiling yourself I recommend the precompiled packages since it makes life so much easier.

            But at the same time if you don't have any direct problems with your .22 version that you want to solve with an upgrade, then I don't know if an upgrade is really worth it.

              Not a compilation; i was just wondering about upgrade.
              For eg. considering this upgrade from rhel.
              https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1289.html
              This on rhel 5 improves mysql 5.0.22 to 5.0.77.
