Hello, does anyone know how to upgrade the version of MySQL on my Mac? I've looked on my mysql website and there are no instructions for Mac. The last time I tried using the installer, if just installed the new version along side the old version and I had to redo my database in the new version.

I'm still occasionally having problems with MySQL and hoping eventually a newer version might solve it. At random times MrMC just stops working correctly with my library and I find shutting MySQL off on my Mac and starting it up again solves the problem. I've posted about this before and it appeared that MySQL is having problems and crashing.

The thread where I discovered it was crashing:
