We will be updating MySQL from version 5.1 to version 5.5 as well as the Apache and PHP 5.3 releases on all shared servers beginning onMarch 18, 2013. We have backups on hand for all databases in the event of any issues with the upgrade process. For more details on MySQL and specifically MySQL 5.5 series, please review the changelog: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/index.html
Most scripts should run normally without issues on MySQL 5.5, however this will also imply having MySQL-dependent connectors such as python, java or the ruby gem updated, so if you are running any scripts which are older or not up-to-date, please ensure to obtain the most current copy of the script from the script development site so that the script will function properly with the new MySQL 5.5 release.
Please note that you may check the current status for this server at any time in CAP via https://account.lunarpages.com
