  • 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?

    From 1and1:

    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
    (https://www.1and1.co.uk/login) 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:

    • As far as I can tell, adding
      AddHandler x-mapp-php6 .php

      would upgrade your PHP to version.. 6? That doesn't exist yet tongue Anyway that's not related to your MySQL databases at all, unless 1and1 is doing some real funky stuff.

      Am I right in saying then that I've now got to create new databases and migrate?
      From the sounds of the FAQ linked to in that email, I'd say yes.

      • Mark - sorry I confused the PHP upgrade with MySQL - both of which 1and1 have been rolling out. I've edited my post.

        • Mark,

          The PHP6 handler is actually for PHP 5.4, which is slightly concerning in my mind. What happens when they finally deploy PHP6, do your sites break because of their unusual mapping?

          In regards to the MySQL upgrade, you likely need to move the manually. If you have issues just ask.
