Updating MySQL

Howdy,

I'm using the DA beta for 6.x with FreeBSD 6.1-R.

Just wondering if there's any particular reason that the FreeBSD version doesn't use ports (even a custom one) for MySQL, and if there's any reason I can't change to using the port.

Thanks,
Bryan

Alot of people including myself use ports due to not many updates. Just make sure when it makes /var/db/mysql that you delete it and relink it to /home/mysql

if your going to use the ports, as i have done, you will need to change a few other things or your system backup will not backup mysql and also in customapache you need to make some changes so that when you re-compile php it dosntl fail,

for system backup, edit /usr/local/sysbk/sysbk.conf and change paths to new mysql install and the pid

for php you need to edit the configure.php in /usr/local/directadmin and change --with-mysql to --with-mysql=/usr/local \
