MySQL has moved WELL past the 3.23.x lineage and is getting close to 
retiring the 4.0.x lineage (it's only a rumor). So I suggest you update 
your installation, paying attention to all of the version-to-version 
gotchas listed here:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/upgrade.html

There is little to no activity in support of the 3.23.x version of MySQL. 
Is there a "VERY GOOD" reason why you cannot or do not want to upgrade?
