Mysql 5.5 with PHP 5.1.6?

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,

PHP 5.3 is not a requirement of MySQL 5.5.
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?
