Having finished the How To's High Availability Apache Cluster , High Availibility MYSQL Cluster, and Mirroring with Rsync I am wondering if I can go ahead and put this into a production enviroment?
The reason I am unsure is the version for MYSQL-MAX (now called MAXDB)in the How To is 5.0 and the currrent version is 7.5. I am unaware of how older versions of software are updated in the LINUX world. Are older versions safe to use?
So simply put would you feel comfortable running mysql-max 5.0 on a publically available server?
Another reason we are reluctant to use 7.5 is that it requires X and that could lead to security issues.
