Updating to MySQL5.6.11 on Windows.

Update information      Edit(Apr.28)      Edit(May.6)

   Today, I’ve updated from MySQL5.6.10 to 5.6.11 on my WindowsXP SP3(x86) server.

  1. Backup all data.
  2. Download mysql-5.6.11-win32.zip
  3. Extract Zip archive.
  4. Control Panel >> Administrative tools >> Services
    Select the MySQL Service name and stop
  5. Overwrite my old installation by the new one.
    In my case, I’ve only installed the next things. Of course, I leave my old my.ini in the directory.

    • directories
        bin
        data
        include
        lib  
        share
    • file
        COPYING
  6. Control Panel >> Administrative tools >> Services
    Select the MySQL Service name and start

   I’ve also updated to phpMyAdmin3.5.8 because of PMASA-2013-1.

Edit(Apr.28):
   I updated phpMyAdmin only a week ago, but, according to PMASA-2013-2 and PMASA-2013-3, 3.5.8 has some vulnerabilities, so I’ve updated to 3.5.8.1 today. Ooops!

Edit(May.6):
   They released phpMyAdmin 4.0.0 on Fri, 03 May 2013 12:22:50 GMT.

   They say,

  • Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.0.0. With this version, the HTML frames are gone and the navigation panel now presents a tree. This version requires Javascript.
  • Version 4.0 contains many bug fixes and smaller new features; moreover, the documentation has a new look and contains an index. Enjoy!
