Default Apache Port Question / MYSQL

Another question on Apache.

The SQL Client for Apache is for MYSQL version 5.x.

I want to run MYSQL 5.1.x.

The client conflicts. I can remove the default apache client and then install the MYSQL client. How do I know that apache will be compat with the latest 5.1.x client?

Is it best to install MYSQL first and then compile/install apache?

Have you updated your ports tree?

There is a mysql-5.1-client and mysql-5.1-server, so there should be no problem with compatibility when you install them

If you have MySQL installed first, then the Apache port will detect it and use that version.

If you don't have MySQL installed, you can set WITH_MYSQL_VER=51 in /etc/make.conf, and the Apache port will pick that up and install the 5.1 mysql port.

If you don't have MySQL install, and nothing set in make.conf, then the default mysql version for the ports tree is 5.0.

Unless there's a specific feature in MySQL 5.1 that is not in 5.0, you should stick with 5.0. It's the fastest version of MySQL on FreeBSD. Kris Kenneway did a bunch of benchmarking with FreeBSD 7.x and 8.x on MySQL 4.x, 5.0, and 5.1 earlier in the year, and 5.0 was much faster than 5.1.
