Hi experts,

Just a short question. I run in the moment a site with 5 web-server and 1 db server. The DB is Mysql 5.0.95 and the PHP version is 5.1.6 on all servers.

Can I upgrade to MySql 5.5 but stay for now on 5.1.6?
I realize that I should update also php but this involves a lot of changes in my code and I need a little bit longer to do this. I plan to this in the next weeks but need the MySQL partition function ASAP.

thank you for your tips in advance,
Oliver

There should not be any issues with doing this.

Just make sure to backup your databases and users.

I did a test on my developer system before and the mysql upgrade was no problem but somebody told me I need php 5.3+ to work with MySQL 5.5? isnt this correct?

PHP 5.3 is not a requirement of MySQL 5.5.
