When we first installed Percona Server there was no yum repository. Now we’re upgrading an old system and would like to switch to the repository. We’re currently running 5.1.36-percona-log installed from rpms (not the repository) and are looking to just upgrade within the 5.1.x family right now to 5.1.68.
Here’s our current installation details.
# yum list | grep percona MySQL-client-percona.x86_64 5.1.36-6.rhel5 installed MySQL-devel-percona.x86_64 5.1.36-6.rhel5 installed MySQL-server-percona.x86_64 5.1.36-6.rhel5 installed MySQL-shared-percona.x86_64 5.1.36-6.rhel5 installed
Can I simply install from the repository and it will overwrite the existing installation?
Or, do I need to remove the current installs, install from the repo, and then repopulate my databases from a backup?
