Hello,

How can I use custombuild to download the old mysql version 5.1.57 and then downgrade to this version in custombuild?
Could you help me please?
Thanks a lot!

Hello,

0. Create MySQL dumps and read this http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/downgrading-to-previous-series.html

Code:
cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
1. Disable autoversion in options.conf

Code:
./build set autover no
2. Download MySQL packages from http://files.directadmin.com/services/

You did not specify your OS name and version, so search a version by yourself.

3. Put desired version in versions.txt and update md5sum value there.

Code:
./build mysql
./build php n
p.s. Feel free to PM me, if you need my private help. Or search the advertising forum for somebody else.

Are you asking how to download files from a site? Do I understand you correct?

You should read Mysql error logs, I don't have an idea what exactly is wrong on your server and why MySQL fails to start. There might be numerous reasons on it: from a typo in my.cnf ... to corrupted InnoDB....or whatever else.

He's doubleposting, also bumped a thread in the mysql section. It was explained in the thread itself that error logs needed to be looked at, with examples. Seems he does not read posts very well.
