Today I received an email from 1and1 saying that the MySQL 4 databases would actually be deactivated. I've pasted the actual email below.
Am I right in saying then that I've now got to create new databases and migrate?
As already announced by e-mail to
****@********.com, we will start deactivating MySQL 4 at the
beginning of next week.
If you have not already migrated your databases, please do so as soon as
possible to be on the safe side on the day of deactivation. If you are not
able to migrate your existing MySQL 4 databases until the deactivation
period, you will be able to reactivate your locked databases for a grace
period of an additional 14 days. To do so, log in to your 1&1 Control Panel
) and select your locked database under
Domains & Web Space > Web Space > MySQL Administration. With the 'Unlock'
button, you can reactivate your database for additional processing. After
these 14 days, the database will be automatically locked again.
For additional information on the MySQL 4 deactivation and instructions on
how to migrate your databases, please refer to the following link:
