    Is it worth/recommended to downgrade from a non RedHat RPM 5.1.40 MySQL installation to this Percona build? Which would have better performance? MySQL for dedicated CentOS 5.4 DB server focused on performance.

    Thanks

  2. Raine says:

    I’m quite confused. Stable/production builds from Percona are based on MySQL 5.0.x or 5.1.x?

    What build should I use on production servers?

    Regards,
    Raine

  3. Geoff, Raine: We build binaries for both 5.1 and 5.0.

    If you’re already using 5.1 – stick to it. The most recent 5.1 binary announce was here:
    http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2009/10/12/xtradb-storage-engine-release-1-0-4-8/

    If you’re using 5.0, it’s probably time to start planning your upgrade. Officially ‘Active Support’ ends at the end of December, so you can expect less and less development focus on it:
