I am running RedHat 7.2 on a dedicated server. I was attempting to upgrade a program called Plesk which uses mysql.
The Plesk upgrade installation installs/upgrades various rpms; however, when installing/upgrading the mysql rpms, the following error message:
error: failed dependencies:
MySQL conflicts with mysql-3.23.58-1.72
MySQL-server conflicts with mysql-server-3.23.58-1.72
Here is what I have installed:
I quit the Plesk upgrade and decided search for tech help.
I located an article which references the same conflict/problems with non-redhat version of MySQL being installed and redhat versions being upgraded. It informed me that MySQL was a non Redhat version (redhat version is titled mysql).
Thinking I could just re-install the proper redhat version, I attempted to install mysql-3.23.58-1.72.i386.rpm but received the same error. I also attempted to install the mysql-3.23.41-1.i386.rpm from the install disk, same conflict.
I used the following commands:
rpm -U mysql-3.23.41-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvv mysql-3.23.41-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvv --force mysql-3.23.41-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Ivv --force mysql-3.23.41-1.i386.rpm
All received the same conflict message.
I decided to check my version of MySql to verify it is a non-redhat version with command: rpm -qi MySQL
Here are the results:

I need to install the redhat version of mysql and overwite the non-redhat versions. I also need to keep the current databases I am already using.
Any ideas as to how to re-install the redhat versions over the existing MySQL versions?
I thought of uninstalling all of mysql and re-installing the redhat version but I am new and do not know how to back-up the database files, users, etc and how to restore the all of the back-up information to the new mysql database.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
Thank you in advance!
