MySQL version


#1

What’s the lastest version of MySQL DreamHost supports? I’d like to use view and store procedure, and I’m hoping to find a hosting company with MySQL 5 support.

Thanks in advance.

According to my own PHP info, we are running MySQL 5.0.16; however, you should make your own PHP info file to check. Make, upload, and browse the following PHP file:<?php phpinfo(); ?>----------------

Careful here Simon…

PHP’s MySQL Client API is version 5.0.16, but DreamHost is running MySQL 4.1.14 according to my phpinfo page.

You can verify this by taking a look at phpMyAdmin…

You are absolutely right. It appears I have MySQL 4.1.14 as well. I’m surprised, because 5.0 is the current recommended stable release.

There is an active suggestion in the Web panel (dated 2005-09-08) asking for an upgrade to MySQL 5.

It might be worth a vote for those that want/need this.
