Why such an old MySQL


#1

I’d like to know why you’re using version 3.23.51 when 4.1.9 is out. Most hosts that I’ve checked out are at least somewhere in the 4.x range. There are quite a few new features and functionality in the 4x series. Here’s a side by side comparison: http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/crash-me.php?res_id=33

My current host uses 4.0.23, and you’d have to be using at least that for me to switch (which I’d really like to do, otherwise). I also didn’t get a reply to this via the contact form I submitted yesterday.

Uhm I dont know where you are seeing that version but the version that is being offered to me is Version 4.3.10


#3

I’m getting it from the MySQL section of the phpinfo output. 4.3.10 is PHP, not MySQL.

Excellent info, thanks!
