    Hello Everyone,

    I will be switching my server from a old version of MySQL (3.x I believe) will be switched to the newest version. My server is running Redhat 7.3 and Ensim Control Panel. Me and my friend will be performing this update, however chances are that something wrong will happen. I am wondering if anyone that knows about MySQL would like to post or PM me with their contact infomation, so if we do run into problems or errors you could help us. We are unable to pay you guys, so it would be a nice deed.

    Thank you,

    lieb39

    Uhm well, easiest thing to do:

    dump all your databases, then uninstall MySQL 3.x, and install MySQL 4.x

    Before installing 4.x, remove all old databases, so you dont need to mess around with converting them to the latest format, now dump your databases back, and your back up and running.
