MySQL Web Hosting


New Member
There are several versions of MySQL web hosting. However, if you are using MySQL web hosting for the first time, it is better to opt for version 4.1 as it is default on most web hosting for MySQL systems. The following are the MySQL versions that are commonly used at this time.

* MySQL 4.0: This version is the old stable release and hardly any MySQL web hosting provider uses them. Though new releases are issued, they only help to fix extremely critical bugs.
* MySQL 4.1: This stable release has been followed by several new releases so as to fix the critical bugs and other security problems.
* MySQL 5.0: This is the current stable release that follows the SQL: 2003 syntax. This MySQL web hosting can even return multiple result sets in a single invocation. New releases are also issued to fix the bugs.
Do you use them on the servers for free web hosting? Or you would like to install them. It is not clear from you post what exactly are you going to do about that.
These days almost all PHP-enabled web hosting packages include MySQL, usually versions 5 or 5.1.

I use 5 on my servers, so far no sign of problems.
Having all 3 versions on 1 server, will have conflicts, do either Virtual Servers on 1 Server, or have 3 small servers like serverpoint said.
Why no one is mentioning about MariaDB here?
MariaDB also is important when we talk about MySQL.
MariaDB forked out from MySQL, for the reason, in case Oracle is doing something nasty on MySQL project.
