    Multiple MySql versions

    Hello,

    Is it possible/stable to have two different MySql versions running on the same machine ?
    Right now I have MySql 5.5 via custombuild.
    But some software still requires 5.0.. -_-

    I'm not planning on downgrading MySql back to the year 2003 for the ossec rootkit/etc checker, but it seemed like an interesting piece of software to secure a server.

    Hello,

    What software still requires 5.0 ? Does it connect straight to the database?

    You best help would be :
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/...e-servers.html

    as directadmin does not support multiple mysql.

    Yes, for sure:

    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/...e-servers.html
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/...e-servers.html

    But some software still requires 5.0.. -_-
    Are you sure that independent mysql 5.0 server is required? Or only libraries?

    Note, PHP can be compiled against only one MySQL version, so you'll need probably to do a lot of manual work and as it was already mentioned by simba directadmin does not support multiple MySql installations.

    okay, thanks you guys

    I was doing these commands:
    # wget... from directadmin file server
    # chmod 755 /usr/lib64/libmysqlclient.so.15
    # ldconfig
    But that didn't get the job done..
    When I tried to yum install that program, it was missing that exact limysqlclient.so.15 dependency.

    When I forwarded this to the makers, they told me I needed to install that package.

    So that got me confused thinking I'd need to install MySql 5.0

    Why would a .so need to be executable?
