Re: Mysql rpm upgrade

I am not a dba, but I did a yahoo search for "upgrade mysql" and found several links.

I do not know if any of these are useful but doing some searching on the net may help along with using a test machine to get the process documented for production upgrade.

I have been asked to upgrade the Mysql rpm's on one our Redhat version 3
machines and wanted to now the best way of doing this. Should I use the rpm
erase option then the rpm install option or can i just use the upgrade or
Freshen options. Any advice on the best way of doing this would be much
appreciated. If you have done this before what command did you use. The
rpm's I am upgrading too are below.
