Upgrading to MySQL 5.0.44 on RHEL and CentOS
Another month brings another version of MySQL under the 'Monthly Rapid Update' program. This one seems to have been hidden from public view on the main MySQL FTP site but the source showed up on a mirror server (thanks Pair.com!) so I've put together my customary binary RPMs for RedHat Enterprise Linux & CentOS 4.
As with all of my releases, all you'll need to do is run a 'yum update' if you're a user of my repository. Those wishing to compile from source can do so with the src.rpm at the bottom of this post but unless you've got a good reason, I wouldn't recommend it because it takes forever and a day for the testing to run to completion and it will fail near the end if you're one of those people that likes to compile as 'root'.
MySQL 5.0.44 Release Notes
Update (9/24/2009): Packages deleted, use the yum repository instead.
