Firstly, make sure you don't have any 'WANT_MYSQL_VER= XX' settings in /etc/make.conf while doing this -- you can put such things back in place once this update is complete. Assuming you're a portupgrade user, do the following in this order: # portupgrade -o databases/mysql41-client -f mysql-client-4.0\* # portupgrade -o databases/mysql41-server -f mysql-server-4.0\* Then possibly one or both of the following if you have either of these two ports installed -- if not then just omit this bit: # portupgrade -o databases/p5-DBD-mysql41 -f p5-DBD-mysql40-\* # portupgrade -o databases/mysql41-scripts -f mysql-scripts-4.0\* Then rebuild anything that might link against the libmysql shlib, as you've just replaced it with a later ABI version: # portupgrade -fr -x '>=mysql-client-4.1.22' mysql-client-4.1.22 That rebuilds everything that depends on the mysql client libraries except for packages rebuilt after the updates to the client libraries at the beginning of these instructions.
