Maybe not such a good question ! But my Linux admin is to busy to answer my doubts. SO:

I have all my Mysql servers running on 5.1.69 version(the free one) that comes with RedHat O.S. My users are forced to upgrade their Mysql Versions because of the Drupal and moodle needs !!
So i need to know if RedHat goes beyond 5.1.69 version or not. If not i will install a new version with no support or buy Oralcle support (which is not an option i think for my users as they are so cheap kkkkkkkkk) THX

Ok Phil let me get this right!? So these are the mysql versions that RedHat will give me support for! anything above this ones is on my own or get support form other company ? – Up_One Jan 28 '14 at 13:54
These are the RHEL provided versions. If you have support with Redhat, then they will (at least, should) support you as long as you are using the versions from their repositories. – Phil Sumner Jan 28 '14 at 13:56
Yes that was the question! we have RH OS support, but i need to upgrade my Mysql to a higher version of the one they provide in their Repo! – Up_One Jan 28 '14 at 14:11
In which case you are either going to have to purchase an enterprise licence for MySQL, get 3rd party support, or get by with community edition support (e.g. forums). – Phil Sumner Jan 28 '14 at 14:15
Yes that was! what i was thinking as well ! Thx – Up_One Jan 28 '14 at 14:18
