Updating MySQL 5.0 to MySQL 5.5

Mar 14, 2013 by DinoGuy
Hi..

My cPanel is currently on MySQL 5.0. I want to update to 5.5. Can I update it right away or should I first update it to to 5.1 first, and then continue updating to  5.5. Should I just  select  5.5 and update  using WHM?

Thanks and regards

I recommend upgrading with WHM->software->MySQL upgrade. The update will automatically moves over all intervening versions making sure the tables are all upgraded properly. So you don’t have to upgrade to MySQL 5.1 first.

before you update, make sure you take a full backup
