|Description:||Open Source SQL database (5.0.27-1001)|
The package creates the administrative tables on installation. Be sure to set a MySQL root password using mysqladmin: 'mysqladmin -u root password your-new-password' or 'mysqladmin -u root -h localhost -p password your-new-password' # In general, you should do the following when upgrading to MySQL 4.1 from 4.0: Important note: MySQL 4.1 stores table names and column names in UTF8. If you have table names or column names that use characters outside of the standard 7-bit US-ASCII range, you may have to do a mysqldump of your tables in MySQL 4.0 and restore them after upgrading to MySQL 4.1. The symptom for this problem is that you get a table not found error when trying to access your tables. In this case, you should be able to downgrade back to MySQL 4.0 and access your data. After upgrading, update the grant tables to have the new longer Password column that is needed for more secure handling of passwords. The procedure uses mysql_fix_privilege_tables and is described in section 2.10.7 Upgrading the Grant Tables. If you don't do this, MySQL will not us the new more secure protocol to authenticate. You can start the MySQL server manually using 'mysqld_safe --user=mysql &' or you can run 'daemonic enable mysql' to create a StartupItem for it. All of these must be done as root.
