Upgrade mySQL database for website

Guest poneil

Recommended Posts

I'm running a "really" old version of mySQL for my personal box. I've been doing a lot of reading but there's not really anything that mentions what the process is to upgrade. Anyone? groovyDude?

i've done it a thousand times on my windows 2003 box. Just make a copy of all the databases (located in the mysql\data folder), uninstall mySQL and reinstall the new version of mysql.


Once your running the new version of mySQL, just copy the databases back into the \data folder and you should be golden.


Like I said, I've done it a million times with no problem.


Note:If you keep the mysql database you shouldn't have to recreate all the user perms or accounts either.


This is an old post but, let me know if you have any issues.
