Install and run older version of mysql with current version

Asked by Gene Ballard on 2010-11-03


I have mysql 5.0.77 running fine on my linux server and I want to continue using it, however, I have some old apps that need mysql 5.0.27 or earlier.

So after installing MySQL Sandbox, do I choose a version of MySQL or does it come with MySQL?

What is the best method of using the current MySQL server along with MySQL sandbox with an older version of MySQL?
