Hi All,

It see the option in CB(2.1) "mysql_force_compile".

Does setting this reinstall mysql? How does this effect my current databases?
Does it run faster/better? Someone expirience?

Thanks in Advance

Briefly: keep it NO if you do not have any issues building MySQL.

Usually DirectAdmin ships customized packages for each Operating System. You should keep mysql_force_compile NO to use them (this is recommended!).

The mysql_force_compile is used in cases when you try to build it and it fails because it can't find a customized package. For example it may happen on Debian. In such cases you set the setting to YES and custombuild will therefore download a generic mysql package and compile it. Here is more info:
