I'm using a blog self-hosted with WordPress. I'm using latest WordPress version.
My web server is using 5.0.96 version of MySQL and 5.2.14 version of PHP. I got a notification that I should upgrade both to latest versions.
Now I want to know following things:
1. Is it safe to upgrade MySQL and PHP versions to latest available versions? Will it affect WordPress installation? Does WordPress support latest versions of MySQL and PHP? Is there anything which I should check before upgrading them?
2. If I can upgrade, then how to do it? Will I need to upgrade them using WHM? If yes, can anyone please point to right direction?
Thanks. Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.
