Is it possible to get a MySQL version upgrade? I just created a brand new database and it's using MySQL 5.0 by default. I don't think I can target a different server from the web admin. I would like to use some XML parsing capabilities only available in >5.1.

Hi,

If you are using MySQl 5.0 then you must be on a CentOS 5 server, we started offering CentOS 6 recently:

You can migrate to them to get MySQL 5.5 by going to:

System shared software versions can not be upgraded by request. There are a lot of things that go into the decision on when to upgrade the system shared software including, security, stability and uniformity. If you would like to use a different version that what we supply you may build the application from source code.
