Support » Everything else WordPress » MySQL 4 to MySQL 5 upgrade

  • Hello,

    I have the option with my host to upgrade to a newer MySQL version.

    My question is…should I upgrade(is it 6 of one half dozen of the other)? Will this lead to problems with my WP install?

    If so will I face any problems? All suggestions welcomed!

    I’ve just switched to PHP5 without problem (I did not think this would do anything but maybe kill a plugin, so I was not concerned with this). Not sure about the DB though…

  • Anybody have any experiences upgrading MySQL with a WP site?
    Where there any problems? I don’t want to mess up the little DB I have, so any opinions will be helpful.

    I hope that I did not piss off any of “those who help” with my comments in a weekend reply to a post…?!? (If so please reread it).

    Or maybe I should do more searching…


    I’m looking around for this info too.

    I want to know that if I upgrade to mysql 5+ that it won’t destroy the site.

    OK so I just did it anyway. All went good…

    Send me an email “Brewskie” just add “_” before the ca in my user name and add hotmail (you know the rest). I’d be happy to share with you what I did and the issues I had (only one small one).

    My host upgraded from 4 to 5 last weekend, and everything seems to be working, with no changes required. *knock on wood*

    Generally you shouldn’t have any issues upgrading from MySQL 4.1.x to 5.x. However, if you are upgrading from 4.0.x then you may very well hit some issues. MySQL changed greatly between 4.0.x to 4.1.x, and that caused a few headaches. But right now I’m sure most hosts are running at least 4.1.x, so again, most likely no issues should happen.
