MySQL 5.5 and 5.1 for CentOS 5


[qutoe]In a couple of days, MySQL 5.1 will move to extended lifecycle support, where only security fixes and the most severe bugs are fixed. MySQL 5.0 has bee like this for a year already. Typically, extended lifecycle will last for two years, after which will become end-of-line, where no support is guaranteed.

CentOS 5.x has been providing MySQL 5.0 in it’s distribution since that was the active stable branch when CentOS 5.0 was released on 12th April 2007 (or more specifically it’s upstream distribution RHEL 5, which was released 14th March 2007). Since then, Sun/Oracle have released MySQL 5.1 and MySQL 5.5, so the Webtatic Yum repository has added them to it’s web stack, which now provides updated versions of all the AMP in LAMP.
