The ssl replication problems in MySQL 5.5.18 are fixed in this release. Instead of only use the key param you should now also use MASTER_SSL_CA and MASTER_SSL_CERT

Hi. Firstly, Thanks for releasing MySQL 5.5.28 but, I am getting this when I try to start my MySQL server:

* Starting MySQL database server mysqld [ OK ]
* Checking for tables which need an upgrade, are corrupt or were
not closed cleanly.

and after searching a lot on google, I found that my error is:
Unknown table engine ‘PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA’

Can you help me?

Hi, thanks for this release, but I have a little problem with php5-mysql.
This package depends only on libmysqlclient16 (5.1.21). Impossible to use libmysqlclient18 (5.5.28).

How to use the right mysql lib ?

@Renaud : Dotdeb is built for Debian stable. Debian stable contains libmysqlclient16.
If you use Dotdeb with another distribution (at your own risk), install php5-mysqlnd instead of php5-mysql : The MySQL native driver doesn’t depend on any libmysqlclient package.

I use a stable Debian 6 Squeeze and dotdeb repository

Dotdeb provide Mysqm Server 5.5.28 and its lib libmysqlclient18 (5.5.28).

Unfortunatly, php5-mysql (provided by dotdeb-squeeze and dotdeb-squeeze-php54) depends only on libmysqlclient16 (5.1.21)

libmysqlclient16 is provided by official squeeze repo but libmysqlclient18 is provided by dotdeb repository.

So i would like to use dotdeb mysql and php5 packages including libmysqlclient18.

Why this is not possible ?

@Renaud : only php5-mysql from PHP 5.4 depend on libmysqlclient16 (>= 5.1.21-1). This last package is present in Debian stable in version 5.1.63 that will satisfy the dependency :

On the other side, php5-mysql depends on libmysqlclient16 only because it has been built against this version of libmysqlclient16 (MySQL 5.1 in fact). Of course, I could build php5-mysql from PHP 5.4 against my libmysqlclient18 (MySQL 5.5), but it would lead to very bad issues, such as duplicate symbols or segfaults when PHP is loaded with other MySQL-linked modules from the stock Debian distribution (those are linked to libmysqlclient16). For example : mod_php5 + Apache + mod_auth_mysql would crash.

If this libmysqlclient16 dependency really annoys you, feel free to use install php5-mysqlnd, that is not linked against any libmysqlclient library and that has a lot of benefits :

@Finn Dorby : I won’t package RC of MySQL, you’ll have to wait until 5.6 is GA.
BTW, InnoDB FTS might not be such a great feature. You can take a look at Sphinxsearch, it rocks.

@Guillaume: thank you for pointing me to sphinx, which i stumbled upon before, but never had a project where i could actually use it. Now i decided to use sphinx and mongoDB for my search index. And thanks for dotdeb. You do great work.
