Have you considered moving to mySQL 5.0 and Apache 2.0.xx?
I would like to use the latest releases of both mySQL and Apache and want to know if anyone knows how I can do this? Can I change the yum or apt locations to get newer releases, or download and install from the websites without problems? The following code from the Fedora Core 4 Perfect Setup seems like the place I need to change to get the new DB, but I'm not sure for Apache.
yum install mysql mysql-devel mysql-server
chkconfig --levels 235 mysqld on
Thanks for any input.
