I see this discussion has been going for 6 mounth.
One of my sites was shut down by DreamHost for being unsafe. Something like update now. I said I would update it, they opened it. I did the update.
imagine: my moodle site is six (6) years out of date. So I tried updating. (MOODLE 2.7)
tec support say use “one click”. That is five (5) years out of date. (and only arrived 5 days after I installed my first moodle)
now i know tec moves fast, so why wait 5-6 years.
anyway: as if it will make a difference, I am updating my site (as per DreamHost instructions) I see no reason to install 5 year old software. So I would like to add my name to the list of people waiting for mysql 5.5.
