    MySQL Hosting

    I'm looking for a MySQL Hosting, because my Webhost only support MySQL 3x, but I need 4.1.1 and access to the MySQL configuration file.

    Who knows an MySQL Hosting Provider?

    Thank you ..

    ateoch,

    If you require access to the mysql configuration: I'm afraid you're most likely going to need to seek a dedicated solution (VPS or dedicated server).

    It's not hard to find a host with MySql 4, however finding one that gives you access to your MySql configuration file may be. May I ask why you need access to that file?

    You should search a provider which supply your needs or go for a dedicated server

    Most hosts already provide MySQL 4, but I am not sure what luck will you have with version 4.1.1 (or above) right now. This is still pretty new and hosts are not very keen on updating key software every day or two.

    If you can be more specific about your need for the MySQL configuration file we might be of more help. Some features in the configuration file are system-wide while others are per-user so some hosts might do these for you.

    I know that Cpanel supports MySQL4 better than Plesk, so you may want to start your search using that criteria.

    I need to change:

    ft_stopword_file
    ft_min_word_len

    As far as I know these are system-wide settings and they require a MySQL restart (cannot be se tdynamically). This would be a tough one for you. If you need a prticular setting you might want to poke around and ask hosts for that otherwise I doubt that any would be very keen on changing it for you.

    To my knowledge most use 3 or 4 for ft_min_word_len so if this souits you you can ask for ft_stopword_file only.

    Still YMMV.

    Searching brought me here.
    Are there hosts that provide database hosting alone ? Speed may be an issue but having an online MySQL account would be good for creating desktop apps that use remote database - instead of standard web-based apps.

    Actually we have been using 4.1.3 for a while now as it is deemed stable by cpanel & mysql and have encountered no problems whatsoever with it.

    I see no other reason except idleness or paranoia why hosts refuse to upgrade, though thats just my opinion.

    We are using MySQL 4.1.3 with Hsphere.... It has been very stable and working great. If you need SQL config access look at VPS.

    There may be occasions where a desktop app (now even mobile apps) might be used instead of a web interface but still needs to access a remote database for centralized storage.

    Sounds like getting a dedicated server or a VPS is the way to go.

    A good host would NEVER let their customers access the mysql configs, or any other configs.
    Its a risk for all the other customers.

    Just get a vps or a dedicated server, then you can change whatever you want
