    MySQL 5 from testing or dotdeb?


    I'm new to Debian, but on the Debian website I read that packages from "testing" (vs. "stable") are not recommended for a production server.

    My question: are the mysql5 packages from dotdeb on a par with the packages from stable? In other words: are dotdeb packages, specifically the mysql5 packages, good enough for a production server?

    There are a lot of servers on this planet running MySQL 5 in a production environment.

    And yes, Debian Stable means VERY STABLE without any risks.

    Maybe you have to ask yourself:
    do i need the latest version or the most stable one?
    If you and/or your clients do not need the latest version, i would choose for a stable version, you can rely on. It's up to you.

    If you choose for MySQL 5, i would do as Till told you to do.

    I know MySQL 5 is very stable and ready for prime time IF properly installed ;-)

    The point is, there is no MySQL5 package for Debian Sarge Stable. So, can I safely use the MySQL5 packages from, or do I use the MySQL5 packages from

    In other words: how do I get a stable MySQL5 installation for Debian Sarge?
