    Move from yum maintained mysql to DA maintained

    Hi,

    Was just looking at upgrading mysql 5.6 to mysql 5.7 and wondered if I had installed mysql via DirectAdmin on my CentOS 6.10 host.

    Unfortunately not.

    Code:
    # yum list installed | grep -i mysql
    MySQL-client.x86_64                5.6.42-1.el6                     installed
    MySQL-devel.x86_64                 5.6.42-1.el6                     installed
    MySQL-server.x86_64                5.6.42-1.el6                     installed
    MySQL-shared.x86_64                5.6.42-1.el6                     installed
    How would one migrate from having this maintained by yum to having it installed as DirectAdmin?

    Thanks!

    Hello Wil,

    Directadmin uses RPM packages to install MySQL/MariaDB downloaded from their official developers sites. So you most likely have the packages installed by custombuild.

    I have CentOS with MariaDB (alternative to MySQL):

    Code:
    # rpm -qa | egrep "mariadb|mysql" -i
    MariaDB-compat-10.0.38-1.el6.x86_64
    MariaDB-devel-10.0.38-1.el6.x86_64
    MariaDB-common-10.0.38-1.el6.x86_64
    MariaDB-server-10.0.38-1.el6.x86_64
    MariaDB-shared-10.0.38-1.el6.x86_64
    MariaDB-client-10.0.38-1.el6.x86_64
    And I'm pretty sure they are installed by Custombuild.

    Alex,

    Thanks (again).

    Ah.. that explains it.

    I did actually notice after asking my question here that the mysql folder under /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild had for 1.2 GB of mysql rpm files.
    The last one in there does indeed match what is installed.

    So the upgrade to mysql 5.7 should be relatively painless.

    After that I can consider going over to mariadb.

    Just wanted to get a slightly more up to date version of mysql for now.
