I see that dreamhost supports MySQL 5, however, I got an IPB board and want to use MySQL 4.x for it. My friend tells me that when you create a database by default, it is MySQL 5, is it possible to request a MySQL 4.x database?
it may be possible for support to set this up for you, but I’m not sure. there’s no way for you to do it through the panel though. I know there’s still some mysql 4 machines for the older databases…
Anyways, you’d have to ask support (or sales) on this one.
