I just recently setup a VPS III server with 1and1.com. Below are the server particulars:

mod_ssl-fc4-x86_64 / 20060804

php-fc4-x86_64 / 20060220

psa-vault-fc4-x86_64 / 20060611
I have everything up and running and I just noticed that the version of MySQL is 4.1.20. I want to upgrade to 5.0.45 (latest stable). The problem is I have no clue how to begin. I have spent hours and hours looking and trying things, but nothing is working. There is no data that I need to keep, basically start from scratch.
The current "installation" is located in the /var/lib/mysql directory.
Does anyone have "simple" instructions on how to upgrade, or install the latest version of MySQL? I know enough to be dangerous.
Thanks in advance!
