MySQL Editions

Hi Experts,

Does a MySQL edition comparison chart exist?

How can I find out which version and edition I'm using with MySQL client?

I think I'm running MySQL 5.5 community on both dev and live machines, and I am particularly interested if there is size limit per db, number of dbs, and number of concurrent connections?

thank you.

Here's the command for identifying your version: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/installation-version.html  phpMyAdmin will also tell you on the main page.

I don't know of a chart comparing the versions of MySQL.  Here is some info: http://www.rackspace.com/blog/navigating-the-various-versions-of-mysql/   The docs available on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/index.html include all the versions from MySQL 3.23/4.0/4.1 to MySQL 5.7.  I believe you will find that all the 5.x versions are very similar with incremental changes.

This page https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/limits.html discusses the limits for MySQL.
