Upgrading to MySQL 5.0.42 on RHEL and CentOS

June 15, 2007 by · 9 Comments 

The source package for the Enterprise release of MySQL 5.0.42 has been available on their FTP for quite some time now. Unfortunately, they left the release notes page at "Not yet released" until just recently so I've been kind of hesitant to actually build and release binary packages. That said, the release notes have been updated (to show a release date of 3 weeks ago) and I'm now making that version available to all those without an Enterprise subscription.

To the users of my repository, you know what to do. If you aren't an existing user, you can either click the "Yum Repository" link at the top of the page, or download the src.rpm at the bottom of this post and rebuild the binaries yourself. If you choose the latter, remember that MySQL cannot be built as 'root'.

Update (9/24/2009): Packages deleted, use the yum repository instead.

    Thank you very much!

    Is this legal to use the Enterprise version without a subscription?

  4. Jason says:

    @Jonathan

    Yes, it is legal to use the sources they publish to build binary packages. It's worth mentioning that the binaries I build are not identical to those created by MySQL for their Enterprise customers. I simply rebuild the sources in same format used for the community releases that are a part of RHEL, CentOS, and Fedora, just with the newer versions.

    MySQL 5.0.44 has been released.

    You can get it at:
    http://mysql.mirrors.pair.com/Downloads/MySQL-5.0/mysql-5.0.44.tar.gz

    Can you see in a spare moment if it builds? Thanks in advance.

  6. Jason says:

    Yeah, I found that yesterday as well. I'm not quite qure why they aren't on the main http://FTP...

    In an case, I built the binaries yesterday at lunch but haven't had the opportunity to upload them here yet. Expect them within the next few hours.

    hi jason!

    do you have created the binaries already?

    I'm using Plesk 8.0.1 on my server, os that could be my installation-way:

    cd /tmp
    wget mysql.mirrors.pair.com/Downloads/MySQL-5.0/mysql-5.0.44.tar.gz
    tar xzvf mysql-5.0.44.tar.gz
    cd mysql-5.0.44.tar.gz
    ./configure
    make
    make install

    Is that correct?

    Hope for a answer soon :)!

    Binaries for MySQL 5.0.44 have been available in my repository since Tuesday morning. See the "Yum Repository" tab at the top of the page for more details on configuring your systems to receive updates from my repo.

    I'm enjoying the latest release of MySQL today but I was one of the people who alerted by this post over three years now. I actually bookmarked this page before and when I try to look back, I got this link from my IE6 bookmarks.

    I guess i wasn't able to thank Jason, so thank you!

    Keep this blog up because it really helps a lot of people.
