Setiing Up A Legacy MySQL 4.x Environment

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an old Web-based application from which I need to migrate user data, however the application in question is based around MySQL 4.x, and has issues running on MySQL 5.x. I therefore have a requirement to move the data out of the old application and into a new Web application.

I have attempted to do some prep work by setting up an instance of Ubuntu (5.04) which I think ships with MySQL 4.x (Ubuntu 6.x onwards ships with MySQL 5.x), in VirtualBox. However, trying to install the "mysql-server" package fails; apparently the package no longer exists.

So does anyone know of the correct package name I should use? Alternatively, is there another Linux distribution which is known to ship with MySQL 4.x?

Many thanks. smile.gif

You'd really need an enterprise focused distro if I want mysql packages included with the ISO. Another option might be to compile from source, if you can find an old archive. You're only going back 4 or 5 years though, so it shouldn't be too hard to find a working copy - be that a redhat image or source.

Here you go: http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=H9EGDY9GAn8~

It's SUSE Enterprise Linux, so not Ubuntu. But it will have Mysql4 on the ISO. Technically you're meant to have a support licence, but you shouldn't need one since you're not using the repos anyway.
