database query group union find latest

I'm dealing with a complex system and below is the simplest cut down I've managed to establish so please let me know if I was not clear on something.

DETAILS:
MetaRun is the main table which tracks executions.
Each metarun executions belongs to a metarungroups so you could have several metarun entries from the same metarungroupid.
Each MetaRun links to a DNAID and DNBID.

GOAL: What I need is given a specific MetaRun->RunGroupID how can I find the previous MetaRun->RunGroupID which matches the following criterias The list combination of DNA->DNB matches and the ConfigTypeID is the same

EXAMPLES: The previous MetaRunGroupID of MetaRunGroup5 would be MetaRunGroup1 because it has the middle two columns 1-1, 1-2 and 2-1 present as part of the group and the last column the same.

The previous MetaRunGroupID of MetaRunGroup6 would be MetaRunGroup2 because it has the middle two columns 1-1, 3-2 present as part of the group and the last column the same.

The previous MetaRunGroupID of MetaRunGroup4 would NOT!!!!!! be MetaRunGroup1 because although it has the middle two columns 1-1, 1-2, 2-1 present as part of the group and the last column is NOT!!!! the same.

MetaRunGroup1
(1, 1, 1, 2);
(1, 1, 2, 2);
(1, 2, 1, 2);

MetaRunGroup2
(2, 1, 1, 4);
(2, 3, 2, 4);

MetaRunGroup3
(3, 3, 2, 1);
(3, 1, 2, 1);
(3, 3, 1, 1);

MetaRunGroup4
(4, 1, 1, 3);
(4, 2, 1, 3);
(4, 1, 2, 3);

MetaRunGroup5
(5, 1, 1, 2);
(5, 2, 1, 2);
(5, 1, 2, 2);

MetaRunGroup6
(5, 3, 2, 4);
(5, 1, 1, 4);

thanks alot angelll that actually helped got me closer to where i need to be
select RunGroupID, GROUP_CONCAT(DNAID, DNBID SEPARATOR ''), ConfigTypeID, DateTime from metarun group by RunGroupID order by RunGroupID,DNAID ASC,DNBID ASC;

+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+
| RunGroupID | GROUP_CONCAT(DNAID, DNBID SEPARATOR '') | ConfigTypeID | DateTime |
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+
|          1 | 111221                                  |            2 | NULL     |
|          2 | 1132                                    |            4 | NULL     |
|          3 | 123132                                  |            1 | NULL     |
|          4 | 111221                                  |            3 | NULL     |
|          5 | 111221                                  |            2 | NULL     |
|          6 | 1132                                    |            4 | NULL     |
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+

Then technicall my previous is the second row ordered by Date DESC where group_concat and configtypeid matches.

One problem for RunGroupID # 5 the ordering of the concat works for the first query but for the second its ignored

why does
mysql> select RunGroupID, GROUP_CONCAT(DNAID, DNBID SEPARATOR ''), ConfigTypeID, DateTime from metarun group by RunGroupID order by RunGroupID,DNAID ASC,DNBID ASC
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+
| RunGroupID | GROUP_CONCAT(DNAID, DNBID SEPARATOR '') | ConfigTypeID | DateTime |
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+
|          1 | 111221                                  |            2 | NULL     |
|          2 | 1132                                    |            4 | NULL     |
|          3 | 123132                                  |            1 | NULL     |
|          4 | 111221                                  |            3 | NULL     |
|          5 | 111221                                  |            2 | NULL     |
|          6 | 1132                                    |            4 | NULL     |
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+


mysql> select RunGroupID, GROUP_CONCAT(DNAID, DNBID SEPARATOR ''), ConfigTypeID, DateTime from metarun where configtypeid=2 group by RunGroupID order by RunGroupID,DNAID ASC,DNBID ASC;
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+
| RunGroupID | GROUP_CONCAT(DNAID, DNBID SEPARATOR '') | ConfigTypeID | DateTime |
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+
|          1 | 111221                                  |            2 | NULL     |
|          5 | 112112                                  |            2 | NULL     |
+------------+-----------------------------------------+--------------+----------+


|          5 | 111221                                  |            2 | NULL     |
vs
|          5 | 112112                                  |            2 | NULL     |
