Thanks again.

We've just upgraded our instance from 5.1 to 5.5.

If I download the software from percona do I have to follow the same upgrade method as I did before?

Well, I don't know what you did before =).  But generally, it's a drop-in replacement so you should just be able to stop mysql, replace the binaries, then restart.  Of course, you should back up your current database first.

BTW, calling it a day now, past midnight here.  Will be back in around 9 hours.
