UPdate of MySQL 3.23.58 to 4.0

Hi im trying to update my current version of mysql. I have stopped mysql from running on my server and i tried to update it via the rpm file i downloaded from I tried to following as rpm -U mysql_install_file.rpm to up-date it and i got the following problem

[root@localhost me]# rpm -U MySQL-server-4.0.21-0.i386.rpm
warning: MySQL-server-4.0.21-0.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5072e1f5
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) perl-DBD-MySQL-2.9003-4 is needed by (installed) mod_auth_mysql-20030510-4.1 is needed by (installed) php-mysql-4.3.8-2.1

I checked in my services to see how i could stop these programs from using it but still no go. if anyone has had this problem i would be thank-full if you could tell me how to get around it.


Distro - FC2

You need more than just the server package, you need the base package, the lib package, and possibly some others too. Do rpm -qa | grep mysql and find updated versions of all MySQL packages you have installed. Then rpm -U them all in one shot.
