MySQL version

Just making sure I’m reading this correctly…

[quote]mysql -V
[/quote]

mysql Ver 14.7 Distrib 4.1.8, for pc-linux (i386)

" If you specify the ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE clause (new in MySQL 4.1.0)"
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/insert.html

So that should work on this version of MySQL… ?

“You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE…”

DreamHost is currently using MySQL server 4.0.23.

mysql -V gives the version of the MySQL client which is currently 4.1.8 on the DreamHost servers. To get the server version, you have to connect to your server:

$ mysql -h -u -p

It will print out something like:

Your MySQL connection id is 56907 to server version: 4.0.23a-log
