mysql-server-5.0 is a virtual package in Debian Squeeze relying on mysql-server-5.1 while I seemed to have 5.0.51a-24+lenny5. The distribution upgrade from Lenny to Debian apparently didn’t upgrade the Mysql-server!? So was I off the security updates and with several vulnerabilities in the first part of the year?
One page on the Internet by Wolfgang Karall suggested installing the mysql-server package and purging the mysql-server-5.0 package, and I tried the following.
$ aptitude install mysql-server
$ aptitude purge mysql-server-5.0
$ /etc/init.d/mysql start
And yet my wiki runs.
