Configuration of MySQL 5.5 on Websitepanel

So I followed these steps to activate MySQL 5.5 on our websitepanel deployment.

The current version of Websitepanel (1.1.0) doesn’t support Mysql by default.  However, with a few small changes you can get the Mysql version 5.5 to work.

    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
<assemblyIdentity name="MySql.Data" publicKeyToken="c567fc88969c44d" />
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />

  • Finally add and update the MySQL configuration in website panel.  These where the values I used
    • Internal Address:
    • MySQL Installation Folder: C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5
    • Database Browser Logon URL:
    • Root login: root
    • Root password: our root password

There is still a bug with deleting the database.  There are solutions available for this problem, but it’s not urgent for me.  So I didn’t tried it.
