how do I need to install mySQL server 4.1 on Ubuntu 11.04 server for a legacy app to run (it breaks on mySQL 5).
sudo apt-get mysql-server-4.1
doesn't work - "package is missing, obsoleted or available from another source".
I'm trying to migrate from a Windows Server to Ubuntu Server. I have a MS Visual Foxpro app connecting to mySQL server 4.1 on Windows.
Just trying to replicate that on Ubuntu for now.
So far, I've got it to the point where the app is already up and running from a remote machine (on mySQL 5.1). However, I have tested and verified that some functions don't work well and it is because of the difference in mySQL versions.
Invariably, someone would suggest that I tinker with the code. I can't do that yet as I didn't develop the app and am still negotiating for the source code.
In the meantime, my goal is just to get this thing to run in Ubuntu with as little hassle as possible and that requires mySQL server 4.1.
