10.5: Control MySQL server with launchd
Authored by: mmnw on Feb 06, '08 08:54:00AM
Just found this (marked red) on the mySQL download page:
It is good practice to back up your data before installing any new version of software. Although MySQL has done its best to ensure a high level of quality, you should protect your data by making a backup. MySQL generally recommends that you dump and reload your tables from any previous version to upgrade to 5.0.
Guess it says it all ;)
