    Hi all

    I have a Breazy Badget/ISPConfig server running from the "Perfect Setup", since about three months.
    Now, looking at MySQL site i found that my version is quite old...( 4.0.24) and i want to know how can i upgrade to the actual version (5.0). and if there some way to keep my system components up to date .
    Thanks for your time and help.

    Why do you want to update? If there's no need to do so, then don't do it.
    I'm not quite sure if it will break anything - I don't think so, but you can never know.
    I'm also using MySQL 4.0.24 and don't feel the need to update.

    Just run:

    apt-get update
    apt-get -u upgrade

    on your server regularily to keep your system up to date. As falko posted above, having a 4.0.x version of mysql does not mean that the software is outdated. If there are any bugs they will be patched by the ubunty developers and you will be able to update with apt-get.
