Beginning sometime in 2014, cPanel & WHM software will no longer support MySQL 5.1.
This EOL will provide several benefits:
- Better pre-release testing
- Simplified EasyApache support
- Simplified database support
In cPanel & WHM version 11.42, we will add support for MySQL 5.6, in addition to our continued support of MySQL 5.5. Please note: If you haven’t upgraded to one of these versions before we remove support for MySQL 5.1, then you will be blocked from upgrading your server.
You can easily upgrade your server’s MySQL version with WHM’s “MySQL Upgrade” interface, which is located at: Home >> Software >> MySQL Upgrade.
