How to downgrade to an older version of MySQL
Authored by: leamanc on Nov 13, '08 10:35:04AM

Seems like this has been on OS X Hints before, or at least in the forums. I ran into this problem about four years ago...not needing to downgrade, but just re-install. I recall finding the /Library/Receipts solution here.

As others have mentioned, this hint can apply to a lot of other things besides MySQL. Anytime an installer package says "Upgrade" instead of "Install," but you are wanting to do a fresh install, check for a receipt and dump it.
