Patches & Updates MySQL 4.x Update



13 Oct 2004

This document explains how to update all MySQL packages to 4.021.

Important: If your mail servers run hsphere-apache-lite, please update webmail first.

For FreeBSD:
- If you are running FreeBSD 4.7 or 4.8, please update the pkg_install package to the latest available version. You can do is, for example, with the portupgrade utility. You don't need to do this if you are running FreeBSD 4.9 or 4.10.
