I’m a MySQL PS user, and my PS is currently running MySQL v5.0.67. However, I’ve got some very large tables in my database and would like to use table partitions, but under MySQL v5.0.x, I can’t do this (I’d need to be running at least MySQL v5.1).
Shared hosting accounts are already running MySQL v5.1 (according to here: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/What_We_Support ):

It doesn’t sound right that under MySQL PS you have less functionality than under shared hosting (while paying far more money)!!
I Just wondered if anyone else reading this is also using MySQL PS, and what version they were running? Is it just my host server that is still on this old version?
