    Unanswered: Can MySQL be back tracked

    I installed MySQL 5.0.18 and not my banner ad program does not work, for some reason it is not compatible with MySQL 5 so can I go back to MySQL 4.1.18, I tried but I get a PHP stack error. Can this be done or do I need to wait for the ad program to update

    What operating system are you running this on? How did you install the new version?

    If you're lucky you are running on Linux and used up2date, yum, smart, or some other update manager. If that's the case you should be able to downgrade your system to the earlier version.

    Sorry, can't help you there.

    This is really more of a systems administration problem than a MySQL problem. You might try posting this question on a list about Windows Systems Administration, rather than here.

    The most likely problem would be some kind of api change. You might be able to isolate the Client library files that are required, and make sure those are loaded. I think all you need is the libmySQL.dll, but I haven't tested.

    You should be able to connect with an earlier version, just don't use the newer features.
