How Do I upgrade MySql without losing the data


Hi All,

Could you please let me know how do I upgrade MySql without losing the original data.
I am using RHEL 5.0 version.
It is not under any production environment. It is like educational institue, However, I do not want to lose my previous data and users and their permissions.

Thanks in advance..
Nagaraju

Hi.

Just update the same as you would any other package. Your data won't be affected.
If you're feeling a bit paranoid, just do a mysqldump to back up the data first.

Dave
