Subject:backing up before upgrading
View as plain text  
I am about to upgrade my Mandrake Linux 7.0 to 7.2 and it should upgrade Mysql version 3.
22 to
Mysql 3. 23.
Before I upgrade I have tared the mysql directory and mysqldumped all the databases to a
and tared them.
I also tared my httpd directory  and moved all these tared files to a backup server.  I 
feel that
it is safe to continue with the upgrade.  Do I need to backup anything else from Mysql
incase the
install doesn't go as planned??
