I just recently setup a VPS III server with 1and1.com. Below are the server particulars: OS: fedora-core-4-x86_64 Packages: devel-fc4-x86_64 / 20060804 fc4-x86_64-custom-config / 20061205 fc4-x86_64-psa8-key / 20061205 fc4-x86_64-psa8-language / 20061205 mod_perl-fc4-x86_64 / 20060411 mod_ssl-fc4-x86_64 / 20060804 mysql-fc4-x86_64 / 20060804 php-fc4-x86_64 / 20060220 psa-bu-fc4-x86_64 / 20060614 psa-fc4-x86_64 / 20060614 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!
